encouragement side

"And seeing the multitudes, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and downcast like sheep without a shepherd."

- Matthew 9:36

Compassion was a distinguishing characteristic of Christ in the Gospels. As Jesus looked upon the multitudes, He knew they were helpless and hopeless, as sheep without a shepherd and no one to lead them. Today, many are without hope, distressed with disease and sickness. But there are far more who are sick in their soul and not prepared in any way for their appointment with death. Whose heart will be burdened for them? Who will lead them to the Truth? Who will have compassion for them? Was not the Lord full of compassion for us when we were saved? Be encouraged! Be an imitator of Christ!
