“When He saw the crowds, He had compassion on them…” Matthew 9:36a
All the towns & villages…
- Jesus was on mission
- We are on that same mission
- In Jerusalem
- In all Judea and Samaria
- And to the ends of the earth
He had compassion on them…
- He SAW the crowds
- They were harassed and helpless
- Like sheep without a shepherd
There are other sheep…
- He is the Good Shepherd
- Not of this pen… what pen?
- We all, like sheep, have gone astray…
Do we (still) have compassion?
- Q—What do you feel when you see someone gone astray?
- Q—How would you define “gone astray”?
- Q—Do you know any lost sheep?
- Q—Bad shepherds… have things really changed?
- Q—Where is our mission field?
