Watch and be blessed
In conclusion, what the illustration is trying to convey is that the life in you and me is not really ours per se. That is the part of God that is in you and me. You might not know it but biblically, the life in you is Jesus. Sure, if you don’t know who is the life, you’ll likely take it for granted both yours and others. But, if you love Jesus, you’ll do his will and, His will is to take care of others with life because enemy or not, the life in them is also part of that eternal life whose name is Jesus.
This is the reason why Jesus said in Matthew 25;42 – 45.
“for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.”
The life in the least of our brethren is Jesus, hence, Jesus is asking us to help them because it is Him that is in them.
Even said in Luke 6:27 to 36.
“But to you who are listening, I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you”
Because, the life that runs through them and in everyone else is part of that eternal life who gives out life through the Son, we are interconnected in a sense by the life within us in the name Jesus.
An excerpt of what Jesus said in John 14:6 says, He is the LIFE.
Now, this is THE GOOD NEWS.
THE TRUE GOSPEL!
