The Heart of Jesus. Consider His great love – He showed His great big compassion for man. Compassion in the Bible speaks of the bowels – the intestines – as it’s elsewhere translated – the very deep inner feelings and inward parts. Our Lord showed His deep, heart-driven affection. The tender mercy of God.
What would Jesus do if He visited our city? If He looked and saw the battered and torn, the downtrodden. Wouldn’t He stoop to care, to touch the hurting and bring healing? His heart responds to human need. He becomes their shepherd. His arms are open wide to receive the sinful, the searching, the straying.
Mark 1:41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean. His hand extends – to touch the very untouchable – the rejects of society.
The Lord Jesus was a very down to earth Person. He cared about the everyday feelings and problems of people…
Do you have His heart? How tender is your heart? I pray you will find a compassion that moves you… to care, to reach out, to touch. To be a shepherd to the wandering ones. To be a healer of the hurting ones. To be a feeder of the hungry ones.
