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 John 6:48-51 it reads in The Passion , "I AM the true Bread of Life. Your ancestors ate manna in the desert and died. But standing here before you is the true Bread that comes out of heaven, and when you eat this Bread you will never die. I alone am this living Bread that has come to you from heaven. Eat this Bread and you will live forever. The living Bread I give is my body, which I will offer as a sacrifice so that all may live." There is a difference between eternal life and living forever. The only reason I would die is if there is a record of sin in my DNA. I do not need to die, none of us do. But we need to undergo transformation by applying the body and blood of Jesus. The body and blood of Jesus carry the record of the DNA of God. We can age and die, or we can take the body and blood of Jesus within ourselves, and live forever!. Jesus says in John 6:58, "I am not like the bread your ancestors ate and later died. I am the living Bread that comes from heaven.
