What Jesus Expects of You and Me

Sometimes it is hard to know where to start even if you know what your talents are. Jesus has something to say about what we can do and what he expects us to do. Until you can find the specific purpose God has for you there is still work we can do.

In Matthew 25:31-46 we find Jesus giving His disciples a discourse on what to expect when He comes back. (Also read Matthew 25: 14 ? 30 Parable of the Talents). Jesus will judge us by a criteria that may be a surprise to some of us.

Jesus is giving us a preview of what the test at judgment will look like. When He returns the test will be whether we provided food, water, shelter, clothing, visited the sick and the imprisoned. These acts of ministry can be performed by anyone. Ministry to others in the name of the Lord is what a Christian's life is all about. As Christians, we were created for goods works. Ephesians 2: 10, reads "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." The purpose for which God created us is "GOOD WORKS".

Ministering or serving others is what Jesus did while He was on earth. (Matthew 20:28). A Christian is an extension of the ministry of Jesus. You and I are created anew in Christ to continue His service so that men would see our good works and glorify God. (Matthew 5:16). It all points back to Him.

There is a joy and freedom in ministering to others! There is a fulfillment of working because we are saved and we want others to experience salvation also. Ministry is where conversion starts.

God has placed it on my heart to encourage you and admonish you that Jesus expects us to do His work. If you have not, repent and start fresh. God will forgive you. Pray for guidance and strength and courage to reach out like Jesus did. For great is your reward in heaven.
