scriptures3The tender concern for souls

While Jesus lived on earth He had compassion on the multitudes of people that were scattered about like lost sheep.

“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.” (Matt.9:36)

Moved with compassion, He saw the neglect of a people. They were ignorant, hopeless, helpless and in a bad spiritual condition. Jesus was moved with great pity. His heart was in anguish because of the condition of their souls.

How do you feel about the spiritually destitute around you. Is there any compassion for their souls? Are we tenderly concerned about people in this ignorant position? Is there a longing and deep hearts desire for the conversion of souls? 1 Cor. 2:16 says, “we have the mind of Christ.” If we have “the mind of Christ,” we should earnestly desire that those whose minds are darkened, should come into the light. Jesus came for souls. This was His primary mission on earth.

The salvation of any man or woman is by grace and not by any form of works. Grace can pull a person from any situation or circumstance. Let us pray that the Lord of the Harvest will raise up hearts of compassion and send forth labourers into His Harvest. Amen
