Wesley's Notes for Matthew 25:35

25:35 I was hungry, and ye gave me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink - All these works of outward mercy suppose faith and love, and must needs he accompanied with works of spiritual mercy. But works of this kind the Judge could not mention in the same manner. He could not say, I was in error, and ye recalled me to the truth; I was in sin, and ye brought me to repentance. In prison - Prisoners need to be visited above all others, as they are commonly solitary and forsaken by the rest of the world.

 

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 25:35

Mt 25:35,36 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat, etc. The reason why those on the right hand are given the kingdom is now shown. They had ministered unto the Savior. The deeds of loving kindness that the truly benevolent do his needy disciples are named as having been done to Christ. It should be noted (1) that the duties named are such duties as every one can perform. Chrysostom says: ``He said not I was sick and ye healed me; or in prison and ye set me free; but "ye visited me and came unto me".'' (2) A real, personal service of Christ is implied, one involving some sacrifice of ease, time and property.
