Compassion for the Lost

01-09-05

When the disciples James and John saw this, they asked, “Lord, do you want us to call fire down from heaven to destroy them?” But Jesus turned and rebuked them.
Luke 9:54-55

Jesus does not want us to destroy, but to save. We need to be sensitive when reaching for the lost.

I want to have more compassion on those who do not rely on the Savior, for they do not know they are in the darkness. I am to continue to try to lead them to Christ with love.

Lord, help me to be a compassionate person, but guard me against becoming so involved that I lose sense of who You want me to be. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
