Do you know that God has a soft spot for you? And that whatever you go through affects him too. Like when He sees you, all He says is, “I have to ensure that my child is comfortable. I must help despite the fact that sin continually prevents this union from being in existence. My love must abound even more to draw him closer”.
When Jesus sees people who are in dire need, He sees it as an opportunity to harvest souls…This is because His primary purpose on earth was to look for the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
You know one interesting thing? when Jesus sees someone in need He does not run a background check on the person to see if he qualifies or not like humans do. He rather looks further to see the glorious future of the person and by His unfailing love, shows him mercy.
Is anyone here lost looking to be found? Has anyone drifted off the right path and needs to be redirected? Is any sheep in need of a shepherd?
Matthew 14:14 says that, When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
Jesus had compassion on the crowd because in their afflictions he was afflicted and so He had to save them personally. (Isaiah 63:9)
Jesus feels our pain because we are connected to Him, He is the vine and we are His branches and in the same way we form parts of His body.
As it is in a body, when the hand gets hurt, it isn’t the hand alone that feels the pain but the entire body. So because we have been grafted into the vine, we have become one with Him and whatever a branch goes through the vine feels it too.
So what is it that is holding you back? Christ is here to heal you if only you will give him the chance to.
Beloved, this day i am here to announce to you that, Christ is in whatever you are going through with you. It doesn’t matter your past, who care anyways? Definitely not Jesus, because it’s irrelevant, nothing can change it. But He knows that goodness can come out of you if only you accept His help and surrender to Him. Indeed He is still the God of mercy and compassion, He hasn’t changed.
Would you accept his help?
Lord I surrender unto you, take charge and lead me home where I’d find peace in Jesus name amen.
