Understanding God’s Heart

Matthew 9:36 (ESV) When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Matthew 14:14 (ESV) When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Mark 1:41 (ESV)Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, “I will; be clean.”

Luke 7:13 (ESV) And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not weep.”

Understanding God’s Heart

Matthew 9:10–13 (ESV)And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and were reclining with Jesus and his disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

The Power of Life Testimony

Titus 2:10 . . . , but showing all good faith so that they will adorn (kosmeo) the doctrine of God our Savior in every respect.

the power of life testimony1

"They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners.... They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time, they surpass the laws by their lives. They love all men but are persecuted by all. They are unknown and condemned. They are poor, yet they make many rich. They possess few things; yet, they abound in all. They are dishonored, but yet are honored.... And those who hate them are unable to give any reason for their hatred."
