Read Matthew 25:31-46.

1. Imagine what it will look like when Jesus returns in all of His glory. We know that He will have all His angels around Him, sitting on his throne. Awesome.
2. I don’t want to be a goat.
3. To be a sheep means to be blessed by God, to have an inheritance (the kingdom of God). It also implies that sheep did something with their lives– feeding the hungry, giving the thirsty something to drink, inviting in strangers, clothing the unclothed, looking after the sick, visiting those in prison. I want to be a sheep, but do I live that way? Do you?
4. God places a greater emphasis on loving the unloved than He does worshipping Him. Kind of changes the idea of what the church is for, doesn’t it?
5. I think we need to be more “least”-focused…
6. How would your church change if it behaved more sheep-like? Do you think that a lot of church is a waste of time and effort?
