“He was moved with compassion." This is said of Christ Jesus several times in the New Testament. It is expressive of the deepest emotion; a yearning of the innermost nature with pity. Theologian Benjamin Warfield’s book is called “The Person and Work of Christ” There is a chapter in that book entitled, “The Emotional Life of Our Lord.” He tried to synthesize the biblical passages that spoke of the emotions of our Lord Jesus. He stated, “His whole life was a mission of mercy...His entire ministry is summed up as going around the land and ‘doing good.’” The world that best summarizes Jesus our Lord is no doubt the word “compassion.” It is the emotion most frequently attributed to Him. Do you ever think of God as having feelings for you? If not, why not? If so, which feelings do you tend to attribute to God? Do you believe that God is “filled with love and compassion” for you? If you really believed this, how might it impact your relationship with God? How might it impact your relationships with others? The scriptures give us example of how God feels love and compassion for each and every one of you.

A Proper View of Faith Ep16

A Proper View of Faith Ep16

Faith is not a personal power you possess to create your own future. Faith is not tool given by God to create your own reality and change your world. It’s not a magic wand that you wave at your own will. God is sovereign. You are not. He’s in charge and He’s calling the shots. God gave you faith as a virtue to trust the future that He has promised.
