Jesus's Compassion

When Jesus looked at the multitude they were faint and downcast. They were weary and like a sheep that has rolled on its back, cast down, and cannot get up. Such a sheep is out of balance and without the shepherd’s assistance will die in a short time. The shepherd must come and put the sheep aright.

         We can be out of sorts with sin, troubles, worries, sickness, responsibilities, or even enemies. We sometimes charge forward in the Spirit of the Lord. Amen. But at other times, we are cast down and incapable of moving. But Jesus has compassion on us, as sheep that need the Shepherd to put them right. Whatever ails you, the Chief Shepherd is here. He has spoken, forgiven and healed. You are no longer cast down, but are risen and upright.
