I want you to care for one another.
How you treat the least of those among you matters to Me.
I would see you care for the “less than” among you, not out of guilt or striving but from the overflow of My love for you. That, from the well of compassion springing up within you, you would bring the lost in from the cold. Will you champion those whom the world has cast aside, seeking kingdom strategies for transformation and alignment?
Share the light that I have placed within you; be the salt I have created you to be.
Would you rise up in this season and be a vessel of love for the broken hearted? A vessel of hope for the lost and forgotten?
Activation: Read Matthew 25:40-45. Read it a second time, asking Holy Spirit to lead you through it. Ask Holy Spirit to highlight how these verses apply to you in your life right now and how you are meant to live out these verses.
40 The King will answer and say to them, ‘I assure you and most solemnly say to you, to the extent that you did it for one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it for Me.’
41 “Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Leave Me, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels (demons);
42 for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink;
43 I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me [with help and ministering care].’
44 Then they also [in their turn] will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or as a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to You?’
45 Then He will reply to them, ‘I assure you and most solemnly say to you, to the extent that you did not do it for one of the least of these [my followers], you did not do it for Me.’Matthew 25:40-45 (AMP)
Salt and Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.Matthew 5:13-16 (NIV)
We love because He first loved us.1 John 4:19 (NIV)
