Meeting Physical Needs

Remember how the men and women who followed Jesus attended to his physical needs—whether it was a place to stay or food to eat or giving Him time to rest. These followers were all in for following Christ and living for Him. Perhaps, they were the first Adults on Mission™.

Those followers had personal relationships with Jesus, just like we have personal relationships with those whom we disciple. There are people in need in every city or town. They may be lonely, hungry, or homeless, or all three. By developing a personal relationship (yes, it can be messy as one Christian Women’s Job Corps™ director has said), you can let them see Jesus in you.

How are you all in at following Christ? Jesus told His believers that, "'Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’” (Matt. 25:40 NIV). Men and women today can be all in for Christ by following His example and serving the least of these and meeting their physical needs today.
