Daily Nugget


Wednesday, September 7th, 2011.



Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.


Martin of Tours was a man in whom faith and works combined to make him a true Christian. One day, he met a beggar who asked for alms. Martin didn’t have any money, but he saw that the beggar was freezing, so he gave him what he had. He took off his soldier’s overcoat, old and faded as it was, cut it in half, and wrapped half around the beggar. During the night, Martin had a dream. He saw heaven opened, and Christ wearing half an overcoat. One of the angels asked, “Lord, why are you wearing that shabby old coat?” Christ answered, “Because my servant gave it to me.” It was only a dream, but it illustrates the truth that Christ taught: whatever we do for others in His name, He accepts as a gift to Him.
Jesus shares these words with us in Matthew 25:40:
“Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
"God, help us as we minister as unto You.
Amen."
