MATTHEW 25:31-40 (ESV)
The Final Judgment
31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. 34Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ 37Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ 40And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,f you did it to me.’

Glory to the newborn King, Peace on earth and mercy mild, GOD AND SINNERS RECONCILED!…AND I BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT THE “MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION” THAT HAS BEEN APPOINTED UNTO US AS AMBASSADORS OF JESUS CHRIST. WE ALL KNOW THAT JESUS DIDN’T COME TO CONDEMN THE WORLD BUT TO SAVE IT. IN THIS SEASON OF REFLECTION ON THE BIRTH OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR LET US ALSO REFLECT ON OUR MINISTERIAL DUTIES AS “AMBASSADORS OF RECONCILIATION”: 2 CORINTHIANS 5:17-18
17Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, http://ow.ly/i/46UPj
