There is Miracle where there is Compassion

Day 19 (25 August 2018, Saturday)

Matthew 9:33 – 36 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction.  When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Jesus performed many signs and wonders as He proclaimed the Gospel of the Kingdom of God.  He saw along the way many who were harassed and helpless.  He had compassion for them.

As Jesus rushed to Jairus’ place for the healing and resurrection of his daughter, there came a woman with the issue of blood.  She touched the fringe of Jesus’ garment.  Jesus stopped and turned and said to her:  “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well” (Matthew 9:22).  He also healed the two blind men who said to Him, “Have mercy on us, Son of David” (Matthew 9:27).  Jesus had compassion on them and He healed them in accordance with their faith.  Then came another mute man who could not even ask for healing, and he was brought before Jesus by someone else (Matthew 9:32 – 33).  Jesus showed His compassion by driving away the demon in him.

Miracles occur when there is compassion.  Jesus was driven by compassion whenever He saw people afflicted by all sicknesses, or possessed by demons, or worn down by sins.  He healed them as He saw them like sheep without a shepherd.  More and more of God’s anointing and power shall be released when we have compassion for people who are in need.

People with a religious spirit, especially those who harbour evil in their hearts, will definitely rise and resist us as we perform signs and wonders.  But we are not to be afraid.  The core of the Truth is compassion, though we have to pay a high price to do so.  We need to keep on doing the right thing.

Believers’ Families to Serve God Together

Joshua 24:14-15 Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness.  Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.  And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell.  But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

The salvation of Non-believing Spouses

1 Peter 3:1 – 2 Likewise, wives, be subject to your own husbands, so that even if some do not obey the word, they may be won without a word by the conduct of their wives, when they see your respectful and pure conduct.
