Jesus grants salvation | Week of July 8th

Mark 6:34, And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.

From the sermon series: Divine service for the departed

Earlier in Mark 6, Jesus sent out the twelve apostles to preach to people about repentance, to cast out demons, and to heal those who were sick. When they return to Jesus, they get ready to depart as a group so they can rest from their travels. However, many people see this and rush to them because they had also traveled long distances to see Him. Having compassion, Jesus stays with them to teach. After this, though it was a long day, Jesus feeds the 5,000.

At the end of a long day at work or school, you often come home too tired to do anything else. You just want to relax, and maybe watch a show or read a book. But then someone asks you for a favor – to help them with some chores, or drive them to an appointment. It is in this moment where we can choose between having compassion and helping someone, or just focusing on ourselves. While it is important to have alone time and renew ourselves, we are also called to show compassion to others and help them when they need it, just as Jesus did.

Journal Prompt: In what ways have you shown compassion in the last month? Going forward, what can you do to help you have a mindset of compassion?
