Serve with Compassion

To serve like Jesus we need to have a compassionate heart. Compassion is a special force that should never be minimized to a human feeling or emotion. Compassion was the centerpiece to the ministry of Jesus. It is also the key to our seeing miracles, signs, and wonders released in our lives and the lives of others.

Jesus went ashore and saw a great assembly. And He was moved with compassion toward them, and He healed their sick. (Matthew 14:14).

Compassion is a heart motivation set toward an intense desire to see someone moved from a poor state of being to a significantly better state—mind, body, and spirit.
Jesus was moved with compassion when He saw the crowds, because they were “harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd” (Matt. 9:36). Many times we lack the compassion of God because we lose sight of who the real enemy is. The Bible says we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against unseen rulers and powers of darkness (Ephesians 6:12).

If we don’t get heaven’s perspective on this, we will fast and pray with the right endgame but the wrong heart and see no results. No miracles. No signs. No wonders. Like Jesus, the Pharisees also prayed and fasted regularly, yet they showed no signs of having been with the Father. They did not walk in the miraculous. They did not have compassion on the people.

Pray that God will give you a heart of compassion like Jesus. It will change the world.
