The Compassion of Christ

 "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" (Matt 23:37; KJV)

This shows the compassionate heart cry of Jesus for the people God sent him to. Jesus longed to draw them into the kingdom of God but they resisted, stubborn in unbelief. He was moved with compassion when he saw the people lost and hurting, with no leader, no one to offer hope and solutions (Matt 9:36).

His ministry was marked by love and compassion as he forgave the woman caught in adultery (John 8:3-11), ministered to and fed the five thousand (Matt 14:13-21) and wept with the family of Lazarus over his death (John 11:35).

Jesus compassion for us was and is real, He came to earth as God the Son but he occupied a human body with the same flesh and blood we have. He is able to identify with all we go through in this life (Heb 2:14, 17, and 18). We are able to walk in the same compassion as Jesus did because the Holy Spirit dwells in us (John 14:17).

This compassion should drive us to reach out to those that are hurting and in need and in particular to the lost. Ask God to give you a divine appointment to show compassion today and as you obey, you will be blessed.

God is Speaking to You, Listen.

Ever been frustrated about knowing what to do or which way to turn? Come on, be honest. God is interested in every detail of our lives and will guide and direct us if we let Him.

In Psalm 119:105 (KJV) it says: “thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path”. In Proverbs 3:5-6 it is written: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”.

God will speak to us as we prayerfully study His Word; He will make scripture jump of the page for us. He speaks to us in many other ways but mostly by that still small voice in our spirit that Elijah heard (1Kings 19:12).

James 3:17 says that Gods wisdom (guidance) is first of all pure and then peaceable, it has to be in line with His Word and leaves us with a sense of peace and assurance that God has spoken to us. James 1:5 directs us to ask of God if we need His wisdom (guidance). He will answer, it may not be in our prayer time, it could be in the shower, when our mind is not as busy.

His word of direction will come with that assurance, that sense of peace; it may not make sense to our mind but it will line up with His Word. Write it down; if it’s God, He will confirm it for you, mainly by the methods above or through a word of prophesy or Godly counsellors. God loves you and has good plans for you; He longs to hear from you and speak to you, we just need to still ourselves and listen.

Give God time today and listen.

Emptied of Self and Filled with Him

 I am always amazed by the comments of John the Baptist after Jesus started his ministry (John 3:27; 30). John said: “a man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from above” (v27, KJV). John knew that without God he was nothing and could do nothing. He also said of Jesus: “He must increase but I must decrease” (v30).

John knew he was the forerunner to Jesus and in humility and obedience, accepted his role. Verse 30 of the third chapter of John’s gospel can be applied to us as Christians. We need more of God and less of us. When we were born again we died to our old sinful life and became alive in Christ (Rom 6:11).

However, putting off the old ways and putting on the new is a process (Eph 4:22-24). We cannot do this on our own, we need God, we need the direction and power of the Holy Spirit (Gal 3:3).

In the Bible we are told that the only work we have to do is to believe (John 6:29); believe what? We need to believe in Jesus, believe in the word (our Bible). As we allow the Holy Spirit to teach us and as we develop faith in His word, this releases the power of the Holy Spirit to work in our lives.

Paul said he wanted to know nothing but Christ (1 Cor 2:2). He acknowledged that he needed to reach the end of himself, of his abilities and to allow Christ to bring him through. In complete surrender to Jesus, Paul was mighty in Christ. God wants to change us from glory to glory (2 Cor 3:18), so we become vessels fit for the master’s service (2 Tim 2:21).

“Till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph 4:13). Wow, imagine that kind of life in him; the impact we would have individually and corporately!

Intimacy with God

“One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to inquire in His temple” (Ps 27:4; KJV).

 King David’s primary desire was an intimate relationship with God; this he sought. In Psalms 42 verse 1 David says his soul panted and thirsted for God (Ps 42:1). It’s no wonder God could call David a man after his own heart (Acts 13:22). Do we have the same priority as David? Do we have the same relationship with God?

I love the verse in the New Testament where Mary sat at Jesus’ feet, mesmerized by and focused on the Lord and his every word (Luke 10:39). Think what relationship we can have with God now, David had the Spirit on him (1 Sam 16:13). We are children of God (1 John 3:2) and we have his Spirit on the inside of us (Acts 2:4).

Do we have the same heart cry for relationship with God that David showed in the Psalms (Ps 84:2)? Do we sit at Jesus feet as Mary did? Paul said that he counted everything of the world as rubbish (that word can be translated dung) the he might gain Christ (Phil 3:8).

For me, the Apostle John captured the relationship God yearns for with us when he (John) quoted Jesus' prayer for us as believers: "that they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that you sent me" (John 17:21; KJV).

How heartbroken Jesus was when he prayed over Jerusalem in Matthew 23:37; the people rejected His desire for intimacy.

My desire is captured in Psalm 91:1 "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty"; what about you?
