Bible Challenge – Matthew 25

“But when the Son of Man comes in his glory, & all the angels with him, then he will sit upon his glorious throne. 32All the nations will be gathered in his presence, & he will separate the people as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will place the sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left.” v. 31-33 (NLT)

Jesus is coming! His return will be a triumphant! The Bible says upon His return all the nations will be gathered and separated by sheep and goats.  Jesus used sheep and goats to picture the division between believers and unbelievers. Sheep and Goats often grazed together but were separated when it came to shear the sheep.  Jesus references the separation of his obedient followers from pretenders and unbelievers. The real evidence of our belief is the way we act. Let’s be honest, to treat all people as if they were Jesus is no easy task. However, what we do for others demonstrates what we really think about Jesus’ words to us here: Feed the hungry, give to the homeless a place to stay, look after the sick. So the question we must ask ourselves is this: How well do our actions reveal that we are Christ Followers?

Today, Are you more like a sheep or a goat?
