THE COMPASSION OF OUR LORD JESUS TOWARD OTHERS








The Compassion of Our Lord Jesus Toward Others
Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ did many amazing things while He was on the Earth and during His ministry.   Look at His interaction with those He met and how he showed compassion on them and their needs.  His compassion was not just words, but actions.  We need to be more like Jesus as we walk through this world.  We may not have the Power to heal the sick, feed the multitudes, raise the dead, or help needy children, but we do have the power of prayer which we can use to meet these needs.  If it is God’s will, and you ask in Jesus’ name you can help other’s with their requests and your prayers. "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. "And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. "If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. "If you love Me, keep My commandments.” (John 14:12-15).
He Had Compassion On Those Who Came To Him
“And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean." Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” (Matthew 8:2-3).  Our Lord had compassion on people who were societal outcasts, to those that others had totally given up on.  The man knew Jesus could help him, but was not sure if he wanted to because of what he was.  Today our Lord “is willing” to help those who are willing to come to Him.  Spread the good news that our Savior is ready to help those who cannot help themselves and when others have no desire to help them. "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." (Mark 2:17).
He Had Compassion On Those Who Others Cared About
“Now when Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to Him, pleading with Him, saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, dreadfully tormented." And Jesus said to him, "I will come and heal him…….Then Jesus said to the centurion, "Go your way; and as you have believed, so let it be done for you." And his servant was healed that same hour.” (Matthew 8:5-13).   Our Lord had compassion for those who could not get to Him but others brought their needs to Him.  You can take the needs of others to our compassionate Savior. 
He Had Compassion on Those Who Were Grieving The Loss of Their Loved Ones
“While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying, "My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live." So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples…. When Jesus came into the ruler's house, and saw the flute players and the noisy crowd wailing, He said to them, "Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping." And they ridiculed Him. But when the crowd was put outside, He went in and took her by the hand, and the girl arose.” (Matthew 9:18-25).  Our Lord has compassion on those who grieve the loss of a loved one.  In this case He caused the girl to come alive again.  If we follow Jesus we will see all of our loved ones who the Lord has already brought back to life and are living with Him in Heaven. At another time when our Lord brought someone back from the dead Jesus said:  “Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. "And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25-26).
He Had Compassion on Children
“Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven." (Matthew 19:13-14).  Our Lord had compassion on children.  He did not say wait until they get old enough to understand the Bible and who I am before you allow them to come to me.    He explained His love for children by saying: “At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. "Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. "Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.” (Matthew 18:1-5).  Our Lord gave a stern warning about mistreating children.  "Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10).
You may not be able to meet the needs of everyone you meet, but you can have compassion on the people God sends your way asking for help.  Someone needs your compassion today, not just your sympathy. Someone needs your prayers, not just your well wishes.   You can make a difference with your prayers and following the Lord in meeting the needs of others.  Have compassion on someone today.
