Matthew 14:14 - Jesus, A Man Of Compassion

Matthew 14:14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Are you in need of compassion on this morning? Tell it to Jesus! He is willing and able to show you compassion.

Compasion is one of God's character. He is full of infinite compassion.

God desires to free mankind from their suffering. He has compassion for people that are lost. He has compassion for people that repent and have a true desire to turn away from their sin. God has compassion for people that have faith in Him. God's compassion is not just talk and feelings, but His compassion is full of action. He desires to and blesses mankind because of His compassionate nature.

Compassion is an attitude of the heart. As Christians, we are to follow the example of Christ in showing love and compassion for others.

Jesus left us so many examples of how to not only show compassion to one another, but also how to give give it freely and with love. Let's listen!

Jesus compassion on the two blind men of Jericho brought about an immediate healing. Matthew 20:29-33- As Jesus and the disciples left the town of Jericho, a large crowd followed behind. 30 Two blind men were sitting beside the road. When they heard that Jesus was coming that way, they began shouting, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” 31 “Be quiet!” the crowd yelled at them. But they only shouted louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” 32 When Jesus heard them, he stopped and called, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 “Lord,” they said, “we want to see!” 34 Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.

Are you in need of compassion this morning? Come to Jesus. He will heal you.

Psalm 145:17-21 The Lord is righteous in everything he does; He is filled with kindness. 18 The Lord is close to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He grants the desires of those who fear him; He hears their cries for help and rescues them. 20 The Lord protects all those who love Him, but he destroys the wicked. 21 I will praise the Lord, and may everyone on earth bless his holy name forever and ever.

Lamentations 3:22-24 -  Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,for His compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
