Although we live in a world with many competing thoughts and philosophies, we must recognize that what the world calls a big deal is not always a big deal to God. So often, what we think is not a big deal is actually a huge deal to God. Are you familiar with the famous parable about the sheep and the goats? It says, “For the Son of Man will come back and He’ll sit on His glorious throne, and all the nations will be gathered around, and He’ll separate them into two groups, sheep and goats.”
To those on His right, the sheep, He will say, “You who are blessed by my Father in Heaven, enter into the kingdom that was prepared for you before the creation of the earth, and receive your inheritance. 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 was naked and you clothed me. I was sick and you took care of me. I was in prison and you visited me.” God is basically instructing us to do something! In order to serve others in this way, we need to put our Jesus glasses on.
Friend, with your Jesus glasses you will see someone in need and bless them. You can recognize those who are invisible, annoying or need encouragement. Through that lens you will know if you help this person, in God’s eyes, it’s the same as helping Jesus. You’ll be in the group whom God says come and receive your inheritance.
