Homeless Person
Pastor Jeremiah Steepek transformed himself into a
homeless person and went to the 10,000 member church
that he was to be introduced as the head pastor at that
morning. He walked around his soon-to-be church for 30
minutes while it was filling with people for service
... only three people out of the 7,000-10,000 people
said hello to him. He asked people for change to buy
food. NO ONE in the church gave him change. He went
into the sanctuary to sit down in the front of the
church, and was asked by the ushers if he would please
sit in the back. He greeted people to be greeted back
with stares and dirty looks, with people looking down
on him and judging him.

As he sat in the back of the church, he listened to the
church announcements and such. When all that was done,
the elders went up and were excited to introduce the
new pastor of the church to the congregation. "We would
like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek." The
congregation looked around clapping with joy and
anticipation. The homeless man sitting in the back
stood up and started walking down the aisle ... the
clapping stopped with ALL eyes on him. He walked up to
the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who
were in on this) and paused for a moment, then he
recited,

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come,
you who are blessed by my Father; take your
inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the
creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me
something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me
something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me
in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and
you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to
visit me.' Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord,
when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and
give you something to drink? When did we see you a
stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and
clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and
go to visit you?'

"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you
did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters
of mine, you did for Me.'"

After he recited this, He looked towards the
congregation and told them all what he had experienced
that morning. Many began to cry and many heads were
bowed in shame. He then said, "Today I see a gathering
of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has
enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU
decide to become disciples?" He then dismissed service
until the following week. 

Being a Christian is more than something you claim.
It's something you live by and share with others.
"Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life
or accomplish for yourself. It's what you do for
others."
