He Takes It Personally
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.â€™
Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’
And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
(Matthew 25.35-40 ESV)
Jesus kept and promoted God’s passion for the oppressed, hungry, widows and orphans that permeate the Hebrew Scritpures.
In fact, it was so much a part of the fiber of His being that to care for them was to care for Jesus. Worse: to not care for Him was to turn your back on Jesus Himself. He takes it personally. [QUOTE: Bible-Guide-Online]
