Jeremiah Steepek has been mistreated by thousands of his church members after disguising as a homeless person on the day he was introduced as the head pastor.

Steepek roamed around the church for 30 minutes, but he found out that only three people out of 10,000 greeted him. He asked for food but again no one has the heart to give him change.

When the service is about to begin, Steepek decided to sit down in the front of the church. However, he was rudely asked by ushers to sit instead the back.

As he walked down the aisle, the disguising pastor received dirty looks and sharp stares as people continue to mock him. At the end, all of these people judging him were in for a surprise.

"We would like to introduce to you Pastor Jeremiah Steepek." The congregation looked around clapping with joy and anticipation.

The homeless man sitting in the back stood up and started walking down the aisle. The clapping stopped with all eyes on him.

He walked up the altar and took the microphone from the elders (who were in on this) and paused for a moment then he recited.

"Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.

"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.'

"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 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?'

'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.'

Steepek went on to share his harsh experience he had on the very first day of his service in that church, prompting several members to cry and bow due to shame.

"Today I see a gathering of people, not a church of Jesus Christ. The world has enough people, but not enough disciples. When will YOU decide to become disciples?," said Steepek, who dismissed service until next week.
