The homeless Jesus statue outside St. Alban’s Episcopal Church jars those who seek to be like Jesus, but who recoil at the thought of being in need.
Matthew 25:40 "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.'
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.â€™
â€œThen the righteous will answer him, â€˜Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 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?â€™
â€œThe King will reply, â€˜Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.â€™
When Jesus heard this, he said to him, "You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
