Christ in those Who Need Us

Jesus tells us that the mercy we show to those who need us is really shown to himself.  He is not speaking figuratively.  As we grow in our awareness that Jesus is really living in us and loving us, we can't help but grow in awareness that he is living in everyone else.  He says that his real presence in those in need is the motivation to show mercy to them.  This doesn't take effort.  The love of Jesus living in us flows out to the need of Jesus living in them.  All we do is surrender to that flow.
