Part 1: 6 Things God's Sheep Do

I'm embarking on a series of posts about these 6 things.  We will give a brief summary in this post and then future posts in the series will go more into depth.

There needs to be a reformation within the churches before it is too late.  Too many people are being spiritually abused and oppressed.  Too many people are needing help and not finding any.  Too many people are hurting with no solace or comfort.  God needs us to do His Work and be His hands.

There are 6 things that Jesus said that His true sheep do.  What are they?

  1. Feed the Hungry
  2. Give Drink to the Thirsty
  3. House Strangers
  4. Clothe Those Without
  5. Visit the Sick
  6. Come to Those in Prison

These things are so important to God that we do, that He says if we don't do them, we'll actually be thrown into everlasting fire!  I think this should definitely cause us to stop, look at these verses and really think about this.  

Matthew 25:31-46 KJV

31  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
32  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
33  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
34  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
41  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
42  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
43  I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 

44  Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
45  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
46  And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. 

Notice, God separates them and calls those that do these 6 things SHEEP and those that did not GOATS.  Which one would you be?  The ones that did these 6 things are the righteous; the true sheep of God.  We need to heed this because we will be held accountable to God's Word.  We as women, need to understand and do these things if we want to truly be who God calls His sheep.  We can't sit back and wait for someone else to teach us, we need to study and understand the Bible.  Churches may not preach this, does that mean you get a pass with God?  No, you'll be a goat Jesus clearly says in Matthew 25!  Dig in the Word Sisters - be able to give people an answer when they ask you about these things.  Lack of knowledge in these things is so prevalent among women and one reason I started this series.

In Part 2, we will go further into depth.
