One of the last commands that Jesus shared with His disciples before his death and resurrection is found in the 25th chapter of Matthew’s Gospel account. In that passage, Jesus explains to us that our faith finds its fulfillment when it’s lived out through our lives. He shares the example of bridesmaids who are prepared and unprepared for the groom’s arrival. In that chapter, He also illustrates the actions of servants who are faithful and unfaithful in fulfilling the responsibilities the Master has entrusted to them. There He shows us how, when we serve others, we serve Him. And all the time, the Master is watching: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” (Matthew 25:39)
Our world is full of hungry, thirsty, strangers who are exposed, sick and imprisoned. They’re longing for someone to come and visit them. Whatever we do for one of the least of these, Christ’s brothers, we do for Him.
