“Anyone who gives you a cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ, amen, i say to you, will surely not lose his reward.” (Mk 9:41)
A simple gesture. “A cup of water to drink because you belong to Christ … will… not lose his reward”. He takes care of us. He knows about our needs. And He will take care of them. Even such simple things like a cup of water to drink.
There is only one IF. If people can recognize you belong to Christ.
So IF you received a cup of water to drink, or a breakfast, or dinner or anything else just because you belong to Christ – be sure that the people who helped you will not lose their reward. And knowing Him, you should remember His proportions – “will receive a hundred times as much, and also inherit eternal life” (Mt 19:29).
“Receive the word of God, not as the word of men, but as truly is, the word of God” (Alleluia versus)
