John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Matthew 9:36 “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.”
Mark 1:40-41 “And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will: be thou clean.”
It is a magnificent thought to consider that Christ came to be the Saviour of the world. It is amazing that Christ is moved with compassion on the multitudes. He deeply and compassionately loves His human creation.
Yet, it is a supernaturally stunning thought that He deeply and compassionately loves us as individuals. He is moved with compassion by us – not just us collectively but us individually. He loves the world, but also loves the whosoever. He came to save the world, but that means saving individuals. Our Saviour is personally and intimately interested in us, no matter who we are and what we have done.
PLEASE PRAY FOR AMERICAN CHRISTIANS TO BE MOVED WITH COMPASSION BY THE STRUGGLES OF THE INDIVIDUALS AROUND US. Our Saviour is moved with compassion by the challenges of the lowliest among us – so must we!
