The Word of God states in Matthew 9:26: ” But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.”
Compassion. Do you have it? Is it within your heart? Do you exemplify this precious act or is this something that can be a struggle to bring forth? Compassion is one of the major characters of the Lord that was demonstrated in his ministry. This along with servanthood was a part of the foundation of his great message to all. Compassion is a great demonstration of how the body of Christ is to function. Without the releasing of compassion, how can reconciliation, deliverance, restoration, transformation and newness of life come forth for those who are in need of true freedom in Jesus?
Let us not lose compassion or fail to release compassion on others! Do not be quick to write people off. We all have a narrative. We all have been in a place of needing to be rescued. The ministry of Jesus again, was centered around compassion. It is time to see how Jesus saw. It is time to hear how Jesus heard. It is time to walk how Jesus walked. It is time to talk how Jesus talked.
Part of mirroring the image of Jesus is to have a heart of compassion for the lost: The ones without a shepherd and the ones who are not yet sheep in the pasture! There are many who are dispirited, distressed, hurt, broken, neglected, abandoned, bruised, tormented, and more. It is the spirit of compassion that can break the yokes of bondage, all chains of darkness and in return, bring people to a place of marvelous light and true love that can only be found in the arms of the mighty Savior!
The question lies: If Jesus was moved to compassion, why can’t we be as well?
