Love Like Jesus
“Seeing people with the same compassion Jesus had only comes from an overflow of receiving the perfect love of God for ourselves. ”
Our human capacity to love will only go so far. The only love that truly makes a difference is the pure love of God, that through the finished work of Jesus Christ on the Cross and the working of the Holy Spirit within us. If we are going to see others with the same compassion that Jesus did in Matthew 9:36, it only comes from an overflow of receiving the love of God for ourselves. God is love (1 John 4:16)!
“And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.”
I John 4:16
