Blessed Are the Obedient

Jesus considers favors/kindness shown to His people (members of His Body) as shown/done to Himself personally. God notices everything we do, no matter how small or insignificant (we think) it is. This passage of the Bible reminds me of James 2:17, "Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead." Faith without deeds is useless and meaningless in God's eyes. God wants us to provide food and clean drinking water to the poor & the needy and show hospitality. Our acts of kindness, mercy, and compassion are proofs of transformed lives walking by faith and in love (agape). The evidence of our love for Christ is obedience to His commands/teaching. Good works cannot and do not save us, but good works demonstrate that we are saved. Be doers of the Word! Love and serve like Jesus! Blessed are those who put faith and love into action (see verse 34)!
