Jesus’ Compassion

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, September 14, 2014

Text:Matthew 9:35-38

Theme:

Today is Compassion Sunday. In reality every Sunday should focus on compassion.  The literal meaning of “compassion” is “with passion.”  God is passionate.  The most famous verse in the Bible tells us that God loves the world (John 3:16). God is a passionate lover.  That love is fully revealed only in Jesus Christ.  God in Christ loves and cares for the world, not the world in its sinful desires, but the world of nature and humanity created by God.  God’s ultimate passion is to care for the world and to rid it of sin and suffering.  This needs to be our passion as well.

I Kings Chapters 15-17: “God Brings Relief!”

September 17, 2014

This next section is a study in contrasts.  We read of a faithful king in Judah, Asa, who reigns forty one years in Jerusalem.   During his reign however, there is a succession of kings in the northern kingdom of Israel (later Samaria), each one of which is worse than the last.  These culminate in Ahab who is the worst example.   When we look at the history of ancient Israel we should never be discouraged by the present state of the church.  Things were worse in Old Testament times.  Fortunately, God raises up the great prophet Elijah to call Israel back to the one true Lord.
