Inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me. – Matthew 25:40
The actions Jesus is referring to in Matthew 25:40 are seeing the hungry and feeding them, giving the thirsty a drink, taking in strangers, clothing those without clothes, caring for the sick, and finally, visiting those in prison.
We should ask ourselves where we place our value. What are we making a priority in our life? Are we prioritizing God’s agenda or our own?
Right now, there are both Christian and non-Christians suffering at the hands of evil terrorist groups. We have an opportunity to do what Jesus told us to do for these people. They are hungry, thirsty, strangers (refugees) in a new land, without clothes, sick, and in a prison – emotionally and physically – of hopelessness.
Look at this verse in Galatians 6, verse 10.
So then, as we have opportunity, let us work that which is good toward all men, and especially toward them that are of the household of the faith.
It’s like we are being coached by Jesus and the apostles on how to respond to this crisis in the Middle East. There is no greater opportunity than right now. The attacks on humanity are greater than any we have seen in our lifetime. People are suffering right now and many are our brothers and sisters in Jesus.
World Compassion is reaching out to over 8,400 refugees every month in the region of Kurdistan. We are working with the local church on the ground to meet the needs of refugees as well as share with them the Hope of the Gospel.
Will you join us? Will you do what we are required by Jesus to do and respond to those who fit this criteria: hungry, thirsty, strangers, without clothes, sick and imprisoned?
It costs $25 per month to feed a refugee, or $100 per month to feed a family of four. We hope you will prayerfully consider touching the life of a refugee with the basic food items they need to survive!
