When Your Pastor is a Homeless Man Sitting at the Doorsteps of your Church on a Sunday Service
You were about to enter your Church on a typical Sunday morning. You noticed a homeless man sitting on your church’s doorsteps. What would you do? Would you simply walk straight inside your Church and pretend that you didn’t see the homeless man? Would you walk to this homeless man and make a conversation with him? Would you offer him a food or drink? Would you go and speak to him and if you could pray for him? Would you invite him to go inside your Church?
This what Pastor James exactly did to test his flocks on how they would react to the situation. He dressed up as a homeless man to the surprise of the congregation when he entered to do his Sunday preaching. Watch this interesting video and find out how his flocks respond when they saw him as a homeless man in front of their church.

The Son of Man Will Judge the Nations
Matthew 25: 31-44 New King James Version
31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the [c]holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: 35 for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; 36 I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; 43 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.’
44 “Then they also will answer [d]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?’ 45 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.’ 46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
