Do we as Christians who love GOD and his son have compassion as we should for others?
sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.“the victims should be treated with compassion”
synonyms: pity, sympathy, empathy, fellow feeling, care, concern, solicitude, sensitivity, warmth, love, tenderness, mercy, leniency, tolerance, kindness, humanity, charity“have you no compassion for a fellow human being?”
I find it hurtful to see people who say they love the LORD say and do things for whatever reason to other people just because they do not like how they are living. As though being a Christian makes them better than everyone else who is not. That is totally wrong as how I see it.
The only man to walk the face of the earth who was without any sin, who was good enough to be the sacrifice for all mankind was our beloved JESUS the son of GOD the FATHER of all heaven and earth!
We humans need to share the gift of compassion to our fellow humans and not to look down on the other who is suffering or lost without faith in GOD. We need to let GOD be the rightful judge of all things. It is HIS heaven we seek to get in to when our souls leave our bodies! It is GOD’s house, HIS dwelling, HIS rules to HIS heaven! No humans own it, so therefore GOD has the RIGHT to let who HE wants into HIS HOUSE!
No different than who you would , or would’nt want in your house to keep the peace if you are living a GODLY life.
Everyone will die, some will make it into heaven and even more will make it into hell just from how we choose to live right now. It is our choice as who we will follow after….GOD and HIS beloved son JESUS or satan and his minions.
When we meet people whose lifestyle is not biblically correct by our Christian faith, but they are not rude with you and are respectful give them the same respect as they give you. Have a JESUS heart, do talk to them as how JESUS did with the woman at the well. Lovingly with a gentle heart. Please read John chapter 4. This is something that when I read this as a child thought it was cool, even more so now with better understanding!
John Chapter 4
1When therefore the Lord knew how the Pharisees had heard that Jesus made and baptized more disciples than John,
2(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)
3He left Judaea, and departed again into Galilee.
4And he must needs go through Samaria.
5Then cometh he to a city of Samaria, which is called Sychar, near to the parcel of ground that Jacob gave to his son Joseph.
6Now Jacob’s well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour.
7There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.
8(For his disciples were gone away unto the city to buy meat.)
9Then saith the woman of Samaria unto him, How is it that thou, being a Jew, askest drink of me, which am a woman of Samaria? for the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans.
10Jesus answered and said unto her, If thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, Give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of him, and he would have given thee living water.
11The woman saith unto him, Sir, thou hast nothing to draw with, and the well is deep: from whence then hast thou that living water?
12Art thou greater than our father Jacob, which gave us the well, and drank thereof himself, and his children, and his cattle?
13Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:
14But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw.
16Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither.
17The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband:
18For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly.
19The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.
26Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
27And upon this came his disciples, and marvelled that he talked with the woman: yet no man said, What seekest thou? or, Why talkest thou with her?
28The woman then left her waterpot, and went her way into the city, and saith to the men,
29Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ?
30Then they went out of the city, and came unto him.
31In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat.
32But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of.
33Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man brought him ought to eat?
34Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.
35Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
36And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together.
37And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth.
38I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours.
39And many of the Samaritans of that city believed on him for the saying of the woman, which testified, He told me all that ever I did.
40So when the Samaritans were come unto him, they besought him that he would tarry with them: and he abode there two days.
41And many more believed because of his own word;
42And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
43Now after two days he departed thence, and went into Galilee.
44For Jesus himself testified, that a prophet hath no honour in his own country.
45Then when he was come into Galilee, the Galilaeans received him, having seen all the things that he did at Jerusalem at the feast: for they also went unto the feast.
46So Jesus came again into Cana of Galilee, where he made the water wine. And there was a certain nobleman, whose son was sick at Capernaum.
47When he heard that Jesus was come out of Judaea into Galilee, he went unto him, and besought him that he would come down, and heal his son: for he was at the point of death.
48Then said Jesus unto him, Except ye see signs and wonders, ye will not believe.
49The nobleman saith unto him, Sir, come down ere my child die.
50Jesus saith unto him, Go thy way; thy son liveth. And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way.
51And as he was now going down, his servants met him, and told him, saying, Thy son liveth.
52Then enquired he of them the hour when he began to amend. And they said unto him, Yesterday at the seventh hour the fever left him.
53So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in the which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house.
54This is again the second miracle that Jesus did, when he was come out of Judaea into Galilee.
To have this patience and understanding of ones heart is what we all need, for there will be less strife in one’s life if this is done. It would be like a contagious happy healthy “disease” flowing from one together. But in the real world this wont happen as long as people turn from GOD.
I am friends with those who are Gay ,Lesbian, and have sex outside of marriage because if they want to talk about the LORD I am there for them. They do not push the lifestyle they are in on me as to support it because they know me and do know that would be a conflict of interest as to my chosen lifestyle. I was not raised by my Mother to be any other way but to be kind to all people. And my Mother is a GODLY woman. So is my Grandmother who taught my Mom to be too. Why? becasue it is what JESUS would do, be kind to all.
If there are those of you who see it as wrong, think about this. JESUS walked the earth and was totally without sin as a man. Now if JESUS did that to us, where would we be and how would w be saved?
We wouldn’t and would have no one we could turn to us for compassion. Compassion to care about us to pull us up out of the misery that we are in. To lead us in the direction we need to go in, how to get through the issues of the day, to get the comfort we need when in pain or distress.
Remember not all people see that the lifestyle they choose is wrong when it is outside of the circle or faith in GOD and HIS son JESUS. This is outside of our realm. So trying to talk to someone to change because you want to help them is not giving them the choice to make this move on their own. It needs to come from their heart. All you need to do is to pray for everyone you know from yourself , family, friends nd enemies too.
We all need the compassion 24/7 for we all are sinners. We all have faith on different levels. We all need JESUS!
May you all get a blessing from the reading and sharing of this blog to others. Be blessed and never stressed.
