Theme: Compassion is a Force


Today’s devotional describes compassion as a force that drives individuals to take action to alleviate the suffering of others. Believers are encouraged to be full of compassion, following the example of Jesus, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need.

  • Compassion Compels Action: The devotional underscores the idea that compassion is a powerful force that compels action. It refers to compassion as a strong desire to ease the pain of others and emphasizes that this force moves individuals to take concrete steps to change the situation of those in need.
  • Jesus’ Compassion: The text highlights several instances from the life of Jesus where He was moved with compassion for people in distress. It points out that in these moments, Jesus did not merely sympathize or feel sorry for them; He took action to teach, feed, heal, or even raise the dead. Compassion, in His case, was a force that drove Him to change lives and circumstances.
  • Examples of Compassion: The devotional provides examples from the Bible where Jesus demonstrated compassion, such as teaching the people, feeding them, healing the sick, raising the dead, and restoring sight to the blind. It emphasizes that these actions were a result of His compassion and that believers are called to follow His example.
  • Believers’ Role: The text encourages believers to be full of compassion like Jesus and to take action when moved by compassion. It emphasizes that believers have been empowered by the Holy Spirit to offer comfort, be vessels of God’s love and kindness, and change the lives of those in need.
