True Compassion. Compassion Is Love

Compassion is Why Jesus Came To Die



Compassion = Sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.

God Created all things. God Created us. Gave us all things. We rejected God, and We gave all authority of this World, to the Devil himself. God sought to wipe us out, but had Compassion on us, because of Noah. God saved us out of Compassion.

Following the Flood, God saw that Man's Heart was continually and inherently Evil {Genesis 6:5, Genesis 8:21, 1 Samuel 16:7} So he sent us the Law to help guide us and protect us from ourselves. We rejected that as well. He sent Prophets. We abused them. So finally, because of His extreme Compassion and Love for us, He laid down His Godhood, He became as one of us, He came Himself..In Turn, He made the Way Simple, and open for all..
"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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." {John 3:16-18}
You see, it is NOT an exclusive group. It is not close minded. It is not a hateful message. It is ALL inclusive. It IS open for all. "That whosoever believeth in him." It does not matter who you are. Black. White. Male. Female. Rich. Poor. Born into This or That Religion. It does not matter what you have EVER done in your Life. "Whosoever believeth in him." is Saved.

God is not sitting on His Throne, waiting to throw you into everlasting fire. No. God condemns NO ONE. No. Not for any reason. He is willing and able to forgive us for any Sin. Again, it does not matter who you are. Black. White. Male. Female. Rich. Poor. Born into This or That Religion. It does not matter what you have EVER done in your Life. "Whosoever believeth in him." is Saved.

However? "He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God." God is willing and able to forgive us for anything. Yet, we have Free Will. Even though God has this GREAT Compassion for us, we have the Free Will to reject God's Word, His Plan. His Will. His Compassion.

Pretty Simple. All we have to do is Believe. Believe in Jesus, and His Sacrifice. His raising from the Dead. Or we can Choose to reject that, for any reason, and we condemn ourselves.
"I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am, ye shall die in your sins." {John 8:24}
It is all about our Hearts. A Hardened Heart cannot accept Jesus, God, not the things of God. This is why, once you do accept Him, He starts to work on your Heart.
"And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh." {Ezekiel 36:26}
A Heart like Jesus...
"And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. 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.

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest."
{Matthew 9:35-38}
Even though the "harvest truly is plenteous," and getting even more plenteous, there are fewer and fewer Workers. Fewer and fewer people with the right Heart, with enough Compassion, to be bold enough to go against the World, to reach out to those who are truly lost and hurting. Our Prayer should be....
"Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me." {Psalm 51:10}
Now Compassion alone is not enough, but more on that next time in Past Two, yet, without Compassion, we can do nothing. We WILL DO nothing. WE will not even care. But with the right Heart, we will, not only have Compassion, TRUE Compassion, but we will act on it. Just like Jesus did...
"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. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed." {Mark 1:40-42}
Compassion, TRUE Compassion, not Twisted and False Compassion, more on that in Part Three, is LOVE. We should have Compassion on those lost. For we were once lost as well. On the Hurting. For we were once hurting as well. We should have Compassion to teach them...
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9}
You do not need to be a Biblical Scholar. You do not need to understand all those "Contradictions." {Hint, there are none.} No. You do not have to know who Booz of Rachab was or that Booz "begat Obed of Ruth." That really matters not to the Salvation of New Believers. All you have to do is have the Compassion to tell them the Truth.. The Simple Truth..
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." {John 14:6}
It does not matter who they are. Black. White. Male. Female. Rich. Poor. Born into This or That Religion. It does not matter what they have EVER done in their Life. "Whosoever believeth in him." is Saved. It really IS that simple. Why? Because God had Compassion on us. Jesus had Compassion on us. All we have to do is accept it..

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"


That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

If you want to tell me, or comment, question, give testimonials, or just say "Hi," the Email is opntalk@gmail.com

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
{2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
