COMPASSION - OBEDIENCE - RESPONSIBILITY
"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?
can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and
daily food. If one of you says to him, Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well
fed, but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?"
"God is not glorified when we keep for ourselves (no matter how
thankfully) what we ought to be using to alleviate the misery of
unevangelized, unmedicated, and unfed millions." John Piper
18Then Jesus came
to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to
me. 19Therefore go
and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in
the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
20and teaching them
to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to
the very end of the age."
14For Christ's love
compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore
all died. 15And he
died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but
for him who died for them and was raised again.
16So from now
on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded
Christ in this way, we do so no longer.
anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has
come! 18All this is
from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the
ministry of reconciliation:
19that God was
reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against
them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.
20We are therefore
Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We
implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God.
The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations
31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him,
then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
32 All the nations will be gathered
before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides
his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand,
but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand,
'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the
foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty
and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and
you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to
Me.' 37 "Then the righteous will answer Him, saying,
'Lord, when did we see You hungry and
feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a
stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You
sick, or in prison, and come to You?' 40 And the King will answer and say
to them, 'Assuredly, I say to you,
inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to
Me.' 41 "Then He will also say to those on the left hand, 'Depart from
Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no
drink; 43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not
clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' 44 "Then they also will
answer Him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger
or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?' 45 Then He will
answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to
one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 46 And these will go away
into everlasting punishment, but the
righteous into eternal life."
"For God did not send His Son into the
world that He might condemn the world, but that the
world might be saved through Him." John 3:17
My sheep hear My voice, I know them, and
they follow Me.

placed on me. And woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!
