How Do You Serve Christ?

What does it mean to be a follower of Christ? It means to worship. It means to study our Bible… it means to give… but is that all it means? No, it isn’t. In Matthew 25. Jesus told a story about what will take place at the end of time.
Jesus said, that when He returns, He will call the nations to Him. Those on His right will be commended and He will say, “For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” Then Jesus will add, “To the extent that you did it unto the least of these my brethren, you did it unto me.”
But then, Jesus will turn to those on His left and He will say ‘Away with you, you cursed ones, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his demons. For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’
So, serving Jesus means helping people. What are you doing to help people? Are you serving in some ministry? If not, we all should be. Serving Christ is NOT just going to worship or giving or studying our Bible. Jesus life was about helping people. Our lives should be the same.
Mother Teresa once said, “If you can’t feed the whole world, feed just one.” We can all do that.
