As Jesus was preaching throughout Galilee, a leper came and kneeled before Him, and asked to be healed. In Mark 1:41 it reads "Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him and said to him, I am willing; be cleansed." Without compassion it is impossible to please your Heavenly Father. But never let it overrule honesty, integrity or holiness. He is a just God! You must speak truth all the time, even when it seems you are being unkind. Sometimes Abba wants to show someone something through a lesson, but you are asked to tell an untruth to save that person from being punished...Don't do it! If you try to save one from receiving the correction they need, the judgement that was prepared for them will befall you!Compassion doesn't require you to overlook others sin against their spouse, their children, their church, their neighbor or the company they work with; You cannot play "God"! Compassion doesn't require you to tell a lie to help them plead their case...But... compassion can require you to be silent, or take the blame for another's wrong...That's what He He did; When He died for us! Three things I believe He wants from us, RELENTLESS PURSUIT of HIM...RELENTLESS WORSHIP to HIM ...RELENTLESS PASSION for HIM.
IN WHOM WE HAVE REDEMPTION THROUGH HIS BLOOD, EVEN THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. COLOSSIANS 1:14... Did you know that the blood of a baby in the womb never comes in contact with the mother and that it is contributed by the male seed, not by the female egg? This was a divine plan of God when He designed men & women. God knew He would need to send a Savior into the world to redeem them!!! We all need a SAVIOR and only the blood of Jesus can cleanse us and make us white as snow!!! Redeem means to pay a price to ransom someone. Our redemption could only be bought with the perfect, pure blood of Jesus. The blood of Jesus came from the Holy Spirit when He overshadowed Mary, therefore the blood of Jesus was completely pure. His blood was the only blood that could pay for our sins because it came directly from God and was never contaminated with sin. It was the perfect payment and sacrifice for our forgiveness!!!The blood of Christ is still cleansing and washing us today as much as it did two t
