Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them,
Today I appreciated Jesus’ compassion for the people.
Sympathy for the sufferings of others.
He felt it. He saw their suffering. He said to pray for workers to be sent to them.
I’m thankful God is compassionate. He saw our suffering because of our sin. He sent His Son who died so that we could have life. That’s compassion!
I am reminded of a few verses:
And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion." Exodus 33:19
It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22,23
God is compassionate. If you have enjoyed His compassion, it is your privilege to be compassionate too!
So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience; Colossians 3:12
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
