The Difference Maker
Matthew 25: 31-46
On this, the Last Sunday of the Church Year, Jesus describes the judgment that will take place in terms of two different eternal rewards: the inheritance prepared for the sheep, those who are His by faith, "into the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world" (Matthew 25:34), and the inheritance of the goats "into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels." (Matthew 25:41)
The King speaks to both the sheep and the goats concerning those who are "the least of these" (Matthew 25:40, 45), fellow Christians who need help. There are many people who need help.
1. Even Christians have difficulty helping those in need. Christians want to help other Christians. Our own needs may cause us to be unwilling or even unable to help those in need.
We listen to Jesus describe those who, without their knowing it, served Him, and we see more clearly our neglect of others. We are ready for Good News.
2. Fortunately, an inheritance, our inheritance in Christ, makes all the difference.
In Jesus' picture of the Last Day (Matthew 25:34), He speaks to His sheep as those who have received an inheritance. Their kind actions toward "the least of these" flow from the promise of their eternal inheritance in Christ that has been prepared for God's people from the foundation of the world.
God secured our inheritance by sending Jesus to be the sacrificial Lamb on the cross. The guarantee of this inheritance for us Christians is found in Jesus' resurrection from the dead, (I Cor. 15: 20-28), the promise of eternal life for all who believe.
3. Therefore, we are enabled to live as heirs, loving those in need.
God's promise of inheritance turns those who were previously worried about themselves to look toward and think about others who need their help. Jesus is the difference maker by making us heirs.
Jesus embodied such self-forgetful love toward us by dying and rising to provide an inheritance prepared for us already from the foundation of the world.
