What Will You Hear?

sheepThe ‘sheep’ will hear this: Come, you who are blessed by My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 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. 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 25:30-39).

 GoatThe ‘goats’ will hear this: Depart from Me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome Me, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me. Then they also will answer, saying: Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You? Then He will answer them, saying: Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me. And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life (Matthew 25:41-47).

 Live your life in such a way that when Jesus returns, you will hear what is said to the sheep, not the goat. The final statement to the sheep is better than that of the goat, be careful what you do with the time that is entrusted to you, because you will have to give an account (1 Peter 4:5, Hebrews 4:13) at the end. After all is said and done, what will you hear? Hope it will be: Well done! God bless you.
