A blessing promised upon those who bless the followers of Jesus Christ …
Matthew 10:41-42 He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
John Wesley’s Notes:
He that entertaineth a prophet-That is, a preacher of the Gospel: In the name of a prophet-That is, because he is such, shall share in his reward.
John Wesley’s Commentary:
v. 42. One of these little ones – The very least Christian. Mark 9:41.
Luke 10:16 He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me.
John 13:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
