Matthew 25:37 The righteous will answer him, saying, "Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?"
The Homeless Jesus is a bronze statue depicting Jesus as a homeless person, sleeping on a park bench. In 2013, The Homeless Jesus appeared in Davidson, North Carolina. Some people walked by without stopping. Others went way out of their way to avoid the statue - thinking it was a real, living person.
How do we respond to the homeless Jesus? That's the question from today's parable. How do we respond to the homeless Jesus, the hungry Jesus, the hurting Jesus? The answer comes in knowing: 1) Jesus is the source of mercy and 2) Jesus shows the course of mercy.
Jesus is the source of mercy. That's what Holy Week is all about. Christ's suffering and death mean we have forgiveness for every sin, direction at every turn and light for every dark day. Jesus shows the course of mercy: "It's about the other person." It's not about me. It's about the other person.
Helping people live life with Jesus everyday,
