What Are You Doing To Jesus?

Do you remember what Jesus said to Paul? He asked why he was persecuting “ME”

This was a shock to Paul because he didn’t understand… whatever you do to the church, you are doing to Jesus.

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.’

Matt 25:39-40

So what are you doing to Jesus? Do you keep in touch? Do you check in every few weeks? How is your financial support? Are you really engaged and a part of Him, or is it just some box you check on the census card?

It is easy to slip into the attitude that the church is there for “me” or that it’s there if we “need” it… No no no.

We should be serving the church, caring for the church, visiting the members of the church… whatever you do to the “least” in your church… you have done it unto Christ.

Maybe the next time your preschool director says she needs teachers, we will remember this…
