“I have compassion on the crowd…” said Jesus (Mark 8.2)
That crowd had been with Him three days…and context reveals the Lord was concerned that they would not make it home safely without food.
His compassion led Him to action.
Jesus still loves the crowd…
To include the crowd that disagrees with you regarding facemasks.
To include the crowd that thinks Christians are idiots.
To include the crowd that despises you because of your skin color.
Well, you get it.
“God so loved the world…”
Red and yellow, black and white. Straight, gay, some mishmash of alphabet soup.
Democrat, Republican, Independent.
The crowd caused Jesus to be moved with compassion.
Moved to action.
