"Then the King will say to those on His right, 'Come, you are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.'" Matthew 25:34
Our Lord’s self-identification with the needy as “the least of these brothers of Mine” (Matthew 25:40), is readily understood and deeply appreciated. Jesus calls for good works in a most appealing way. Some have sought to find support here for their belief that acceptance with God rests not only on faith but also on good works.
