And seeing the multitudes, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and downcast like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.” (Matthew 9:36-38 NASB)
We are looking at some of the things that move the Lord Jesus.
Today we find Him looking at the world He was moving through. The world He created. The world that would reject Him, accuse Him, condemn Him, and crucify Him.
When He looks at them, He feels compassion.
He sees their state – they are:
- Sheep without a shepherd
And it breaks His heart.
He wants to share His heart with you today.
When you look at the lost around you, do you see the enemy? Do you see the opposition?
I remember a missionary friend of mine once saying to me that he landed at the airport in a foreign land, and as he stepped off the plane his heart broke because he saw masses of people lost and in need of a Savior.
If you will see through the eyes of your Savior today, you will see need rather than hate. You will feel compassion, rather than opposition. They are not the problem, they are the reason you are there with the solution.
