When Confused, Listen to Jesus #3: On The Sheep of Jesus and the Goats of the World.
A Christianity which does not do for others has no eternal value, that is the message and teaching of Jesus on a Cup of Water. Granted even simple works like this can not determine your salvation, but a failure of doing what Jesus said indicates your salvation is a sham. And it is for seniors as well as teenagers or young adults also, if you are old enough to experience salvation with a profession of faith, you are old enough to do for others; and must if you want to be in heaven. Retired or just young, you remain either a goat or a sheep in the sight of Jesus on His throne for judgment. Also granted you can coast along in your life going to worship, singing songs, and with some testimony of Jesus; however if no cup of water for anybody you see in need and you can do something about it, you are either in danger of hell fire or on the verge!
If you have one iota of hesitation and confusion on this matter, it behooves you to listen to Jesus again on these clear teachings, and better now than too late!
“When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of 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 took Me in; 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? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
“Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting 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 take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’
“Then they also will answer Him, 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, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch 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 everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 25:31-46)
