Matthew 25:31- Food For The Poor

“When the Son of Man appears in his heavenly glory, with all the angels accompanying him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly splendor,” Jesus says. Eventually, all of the nations will congregate before him, and he will separate the people one from another in the same way that a shepherd separates sheep from goats. “He will place the sheep to his right and the goats to his left,” says the farmer. The King will then address those on his right, saying, “Come, you who have been blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom that has been prepared for you from the beginning of time.” For I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, “I was a stranger and you welcomed me in, I needed clothing and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in jail and you came to see me.” “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you?

Matthew 25:34-40 is a passage from the Bible that teaches about love. Then the King will address those on his right, saying, “Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom that has been planned for you from the foundation of the world.” In the sense that I was hungry and you provided food for me, I was thirsty and you provided drink for me, I was a stranger and you greeted me, I was naked and you dressed me, I was ill and you visited me, I was imprisoned and you came to me.

“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and offer you anything to drink?” the righteous will respond.

And when was the last time we saw you sick or in prison and paid you a visit?’ In response, the King will respond: ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, so you did it to me.’ I feel that your life demonstrates a deep faith in the way that you choose to live it.

  4. We, as God’s children, have a responsibility to feed the hungry and provide water to the thirsty.

It is the mandate Jesus offers us in this verse that I hold close to my heart at all times: “Truly I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of my brethren, you did it to me.” We must learn to recognize Jesus in the midst of our daily lives, in our friend’s embrace, in a stranger’s friendly greeting, etc.

In order to walk in the light of God, we must follow the instructions of Jesus. Everyone we come across must be treated as a child of God, and they must receive what they are due from us. Hannah Coderre is a member of the Class of 2017.

Matthew 25:35 Context

In front of him, all nations will be brought together, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd divides her sheep from her goats: 33And he is to place the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left, according to the law. As he sits on his right hand, the King will say to them: Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom that has been prepared for you from the foundation of the world.35For I was a hungred, and you provided me with meat; I was thirsty, and you provided me with drink; I was a stranger, and you provided a place to stay.

37 Once this occurs, the righteous will respond to him by saying: “Lord, when did we see you hungry and fedthee?” or are you thirsty and need something to drink?

Bible Commentary for Matthew 25:35

25:35 You saw that I was hungry, and you fed me; you saw that I was thirsty, and you gave me drink – All of these acts of outward compassion imply faith and love, and they must always be followed by acts of spiritual kindness However, works of this nature could not be mentioned in the same way by the Judge. In no way could he say things like, “I was in mistake, and you brought me back to the truth; I was in sin, and you brought me to repentance.” In jail – Prisoners, more than any other group, require frequent visits since they are frequently lonely and abandoned by the rest of the world.

People’s Bible Notes for Matthew 25:35

Jesus says in Matthew 25:35 and 36 Because I was starving and you provided me with steak and other provisions. We now have a clear understanding of why individuals on the right hand are granted authority over the kingdom. They had performed a service for the Savior. All of the acts of loving compassion that the really benevolent perform for his needy disciples are referred to be actions done in the name of Christ. (1) It should be highlighted that the responsibilities listed are those that everyone may carry out on their own.

(2) Real, personal service to Christ is suggested, one that will necessitate some sacrifice of comfort, time, and property on the part of the individual.

“For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink”

Part of the book “The Warnings of the New Testament” is devoted to this topic. However, Matthew 25 does not conclude with the parable of the talents; rather, it is immediately followed by the unparabolical chapter that follows, which is closely related to the three parables that we have already read: Matthew 25:31-46 is a biblical passage. “When the Son of Man appears in all his glory, with all the angels accompanying him, he will take his rightful place on his beautiful throne. There will be a gathering of all nations before him, and he will separate people one from another in the same way that a shepherd separates sheep from other goats.

Then the King will address those on his right, saying, “Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom that has been planned for you from the foundation of the world.” For I was hungry, and you provided food for me; I was thirsty, and you provided water; I was a stranger, and you welcomed me; I was naked, and you clothed me; I was ill, and you visited me; I was in jail, and you visited me.

“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and offer you anything to drink?” the righteous will respond.

And when was the last time we saw you sick or in prison and paid you a visit?’ In response, the King will respond: ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, so you did it to me.'” Later, to those on his left, he will command them to “depart from me,” into the everlasting fire reserved for the devil and his angels (Revelation 20:11).

After that, they will respond, saying, ‘Lord, when have we seen you hungry or thirsty or a stranger, naked, sick, or in jail and did not attend to you?’ Once this is done he will respond by stating something along the lines of ‘Truly I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of them, you did not do it to me.’ And they will be sent away into eternal torment, whilst the righteous will be cast away into everlasting life.” “Some are quick to reject the text above as referring to others rather than themselves, claiming that we are saved by grace via faith rather than by our own efforts.

I would cheerfully accept this logic – and it is true that I did so for many years – if it did not have the following flaws in it: Were these statements said by the Lord, as were the three parables from Matthew 24 and 25 that we have just read, to whom were they addressed?

Following the disciples’ inquiry, the Lord responded with a teaching that began with a response to their question: Matthew 24:3 (KJV) “When Jesus was on the Mount of Olives, the disciples approached him privately and said, “Tell us, when will these things take place, and what will be the sign of your coming and the end of the age?” (Matthew 24:36-38) Afterwards, after He has informed them about the false Christs, false prophets, the abomination of desolation, and other such things, He says: Matthew 24:36-39, 42-43 “However, no one, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father, is aware of the exact day and time of that event.

  1. Because, just as the days of Noah were, so will be the appearance of the Son of Man on the scene.
  2. For this reason, keep your eyes open, for you have no way of knowing when your Lord will appear.
  3. As a result, you must likewise be prepared, for the Son of Man will arrive at an unexpected hour.” “As a result, keep your eyes peeled because you never know when your Lord will appear to you.” Who are the people who are expected to remain vigilant and awake?
  4. And then the Lord goes on to give other instances, all of which are related to one and the same situation: how someone who is waiting for the Lord to return should act during the time that He is not there.
  5. If we are not these individuals, then who are they?
  6. This is the fundamental reason why I think that these words of the Lord are not referring to someone else, but rather to me personally.

According to Matthew 26:1-2, this is expressly stated: Matthew 26:1-2 (NASB) “When Jesus had done speaking, he turned to his followers and said, “You know that the Passover will be celebrated in two days, and that the Son of Man will be handed up to be crucified after that.”” These were lessons that the Lord imparted to his followers exactly at the conclusion of his mission, two days before his death on the cross.

And aren’t we precisely the same as these individuals?

For better or worse, if we remove ourselves from these words of Christ that He said to His followers, then there is no one else to whom these words could possibly relate.

In addition to providing knowledge, he also provided instructions for application!

See what John says in his epistle, which is reproduced here.

When someone possesses the world’s wealth and sees a brother in need, but closes his heart against him, how can God’s love dwell in him, you have to wonder.

James 2:14-17 (New International Version) “Who cares, my brothers, if someone claims to be a believer but does not demonstrate it through his actions.

“Go in peace, be warmed and full,” says one of you to a brother or sister who is inadequately clothed and lacking in daily food.

As a result, if faith is not accompanied by actions, it is lifeless.” When it comes down to it, whether or not we are genuinely Christ’s disciples is demonstrated very simply by whether or not we follow His Word, doing- yes, with mistakes and failures- what this Word teaches.

When it comes to salvation, real faith is what counts, and such faith is demonstrated by performing God’s will, which includes the deeds that He has prepared for us.

His Word makes it very clear what they are and are not.

Even Jesus Was Hungry!

  3. As a result, you must also be prepared, since the Son of Man will appear at an unexpected hour.” “As a result, keep your eyes open, for you never know when your Lord may appear.” Who are the people who need to be kept awake and alerted?
  4. And then the Lord goes on to give other instances, all of which are related to one and the same situation: how someone who is waiting for the Lord to return should act during the time that He is absent.
  5. If we are not these individuals, then who are we?
  6. This is the fundamental reason why I think that these words of the Lord are not directed at someone else, but rather at me personally.

This is expressly stated in Matthew 26:1-2: Matthew 26:1-2 (KJV) “When Jesus had done speaking, he turned to his followers and said, “You know that the Passover is approaching, and that the Son of Man will be handed up to be crucified in two days.”” These were lessons that Jesus gave to his followers near the end of his mission, two days before he was crucified.

What Jesus stated is also not unique in any way.

But if someone possesses the world’s things and sees his brother in need, but closes his heart against him, how can God’s love abide in him?

Can he be saved by his faith?

Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by deeds, is dead.” When it comes down to it, whether or not we are genuinely Christ’s disciples is demonstrated quite simply by whether or not we follow His Word, doing- yes, with mistakes and failures- what this Word says (I repeat: we are not yet perfect, but we are rushing toward it (Philippians 3:12) In accordance with the Lord’s words, not everyone who calls Him Lord Lord will be admitted into the Kingdom, but only those who follow the commands of His Father.

Indeed, it is real faith that saves, but true faith is shown in carrying out the will of God, in carrying out the works that God has prepared for us.

They are clearly recorded in His Word.

“Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?” the righteous will respond.

And when did we last see you sick or in prison, and when did we pay you a visit?’ And the King will respond, “Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.”” In addition, James 1:27 “It is this: to visit orphans and widows in their sorrow, and to keep oneself unstained from the world, that constitutes religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father.” The following section is: The parable of the ten thousand talents is a story about a person who owes ten thousand talents.

Jesus was hungry

In this week’s series of posts, I’ll be focusing on the biblical narrative of events that took place during the last week of Jesus’ life. The passage for today is taken from Mark 11:12-19. (NRSV). The Temple is cleansed by Jesus. 12 Jesus was starving the next day as they were leaving Bethany, according to the Bible. 13 After spotting a fig tree in full bloom in the distance, he went to see if it was bearing fruit. When he arrived, he discovered nothing but leaves, as it was the wrong time of year for figs.

  1. 15 When Jesus arrived in Jerusalem, he entered the temple area and immediately began expelling individuals who were engaged in buying and selling.
  2. 17 “Is it not written: ‘My house will be designated a place of prayer for all nations’?” he inquired as he instructed them.
  3. 19 When the nighttime arrived, they left the city behind them.
  4. However, it is obvious from some of Paul’s writings that even by the mid-first century, leaders of The Way were seeking to find a way to reconcile the contradictory concepts that Jesus was both God and a human being.
  5. On “Fig Monday,” the most of the attention is focused on Jesus’ turning the tables in the Temple, but this year, I’m struck more by the mere fact that Jesus was hungry than anything else.
  6. It contains just a handful of the information that Matthew and Luke appear to have discovered in their shared Q source, if any at all.
  7. As Mark tells us that Jesus was hungry, immediately before demonstrating his authority over even the trees of the world by saying, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again,” he underscores Jesus’ humanity by reminding us that Jesus was hungry.
  8. I can’t tell you how many places I’ve cursed because they didn’t have what I wanted on their menu when I was hungry.
  9. Putting aside my personal grumpiness, I’m grateful for Mark’s meticulous attention to detail on this Monday of Holy Week.

The greatest example of surrender to God’s will that Christ set for us this week and in the months and years ahead may serve as inspiration for us all.

Food distribution ministry in Hamilton, MI

Hungry for Christ is a food distribution ministry based in Hamilton, Michigan. We are able to use edible food products because of the numerous contacts we have established with food producers. These edible food items may have been judged unsellable by their consumers for a variety of reasons. Following that, the food products are picked up by our 53-foot temperature-controlled semi-truck and transported back to our warehouse, where they are securely kept in accordance with federal safe food handling rules.

He Was Hungry — The River Church

Memory Verse”Jesus said, “I am the bread of life,” and he went on to say more. Anyone who comes to me will never be hungry again. I guarantee it. No one will ever be thirsty if they have faith in me.” 6:35 (John 6:35) Matthew 4:1-11 is the Bible verse. Then the Spirit took Jesus into the desert, where he was tempted by the devil for forty days and forty nights. His hunger increased after forty days and forty nights of abstinence from food. 3 After that, the tempter approached him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become food for me.” Jesus said, “It is stated, ‘Man shall not live by food alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'” 4 5 After that, the devil transported him to the holy city and forced him to stand on the highest point of the temple complex.

6 And Jesus responded, “It is likewise stated, ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'” 8 Once more, the devil transported him to a very high mountain where he was shown all of the kingdoms of the earth in all of their magnificence.

Due to the fact that it is written: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve him alone.” 11 After that, the demon left him, and angels appeared and took care of him.

You were so hungry that you couldn’t wait to get your hands on anything to eat?

He engaged in a practice known as fasting in order to prepare for the testing and for his ministry.

Essentially, this signifies that Jesus did not consume anything for 40 days while fasting in the desert.

So, of course, the first thing Satan uses to put Jesus through his paces is food.

It is not the case that eating is a sin.

“The Son of Man (that is, Jesus) did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many,” Jesus adds later in Matthew.

Because Jesus reminds Satan that “people do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God,” he successfully passes all of Satan’s tests (something that we don’t always manage to accomplish).

Prayer Almighty God, your Son Jesus was brought into the desert by the Holy Spirit to be tempted by Satan, but he did not fall prey to temptation.

When we are tempted, please come promptly to our aid. Despite the fact that you are aware of each of our flaws, you are powerful enough to save us through Jesus Christ your Son, Our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit as one God now and forever. Amen.
