Bible Text: John 1:43 |

A study of the Compassion of Christ

Introduction:  I would like to consider what the Bible has to say about compassion. The life of Christ is categorized by many events, parables and miracles. However, I would like to look at one aspect that defines Jesus real person – He was a compassionate person.

God is a compassionate God - Exodus 34:6; 2 Kings 13:23; Psalms 116:5; Isaiah 40:11
Christ is a compassionate Savior - Matthew 4:23-24; Luke 19:41; John 13:1

I. The compassionate life of our Savior

  • He sought out men, John 1:43
  • He waited for men, John 3:2
  • He went out of His way for men, John 4:4-5
  • He cared for any man, John 5:6-8
  • He fed men, John 6:11
  • He satisfied the thirst of man, John 7:37
  • He brought light to man, John 8:12

II. A Story from the Gospel’s

Luke 10:36-37 – The Good Samaritan
Christ’s typifies 4 classes of men

  • The Priest
  • The Thieves
  • The Levite
  • The Samaritan

III. A challenge given by our Savior

Go and do thou likewise - Luke 10
Matthew 25:40 / John 4:35

Conclusion: How are you like the Savior in this area? Have you fallen short? Are you cold and indifferent to those that walk around you? We need to be a compassionate church that reaches this lost world with the light of the glorious Gospel.
