In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a parable about how God views his followers. To the ones he chooses to receive their inheritance, he says, “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.”(v. 35-36) When they questioned these occurrences, Jesus replies, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (v. 40)
God wants us to engage with the world, care for the needy, and provide loving guidance to unbelievers. Get involved in one or more of these outreach ministries for opportunities to serve God by serving others.
