ARE YOU A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST?
"When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats." Matthew 25:31,32
Jesus will ultimately separate His disciples from the lost at the end and will set the sheep, those who were followers who had a heart for the needy on His right and the goats on His left, those who didn't care for their fellow man, only looking out for themselves! Disciples have the heart of God, being transformed from carnal humans to supernatural kingdom people sent to do that which He has called us to do!
When you see a disciple of Christ you see Jesus, because of their love for one another and for the people of the world who are lost and dying in their sins! When Jesus was taken up He left us to carry on His ministry by doing the greater works of healing, deliverance and signs and wonders. We are the expression of Him in the earth, chosen as stewards of His word and ministers of His gospel.
So, as you have read these messages, are you in fact a disciple of Jesus Christ, or are you just another religious spectator? The world is full of lost church members, pew sitters and cheerleaders for their denomination, sect or even cult, but have you surrendered your life to His control as Master and Lord, or have you just prayed a prayer and joined up with millions who don't belong to Him?
"Then He will say to those (goats) on the left hand, "Depart from Me you cursed, into everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 'for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 'I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.' "Then those will answer Him, saying, 'Lord when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?' "Then He will answer them, saying, 'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' "And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life." Matthew 25:41-46
