““The one who welcomes you welcomes Me, and the one who welcomes Me welcomes Him who sent Me. Anyone who welcomes a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward. And anyone who welcomes a righteous person because he’s righteous will receive a righteous person’s reward. And whoever gives just a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple — I assure you: He will never lose his reward! ””

Matthew 10:40-42 HCSB

I find this very interesting. There is direct correlation between reward and level whom you serve. You welcome a righteous person, you receive a righteous person’s reward. You welcome a prophet, you get a prophet’s reward. Welcome a disciple of Jesus, and it never ends! For me Jesus is saying, as He does elsewhere, that to welcome a believer is to welcome Him. To serve a believer is to serve Him. How can I serve the Kingdom? I can help my fellow believers!
