So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight and they followed Him (Matthew 20:34 NKJV).
And when the Lord saw her, He had compassion on her, Do not weep. And He went forward and touched the funeral bier, and the pallbearers stood still. And He said, Young man, I say to you, arise [from death]! And the man [who was] dead sat up and began to speak. And [Jesus] gave him to his mother. (Luke 7:13-15 AMP)
It was His compassion for the hurting, sick, and broken that moved Him to act on their behalf. We can say that we care. We can cry about all the injustices that we see in our world, but until it moves us, I don't think it is the compassion He desires us to have. The compassion He wants us to have will cause us to follow through with action. Jesus's compassion moved Him to wait by a well to fill an outcast woman with His living water. It caused Him to stoop down in the dirt and help someone who was unworthy in her own eyes. His compassion compelled Him to give His life for all mankind in an unthinkable way.
His compassion flowing from your heart will cause you to give when it hurts and to go when you would rather stay. It will move you, it will force you to stand up for what you believe. You cannot see something so wrong and then do nothing, this is not having compassion. Most of the time what causes you to feel compassion will also cause you anguish. This is because God wants you to see this problem, to feel how He feels about it, and to move you to do something. Ask God for His compassion, ask God to show you what problems He created you to solve. Ask the Lord what He anointed you to do! What purpose will your life serve? Will you allow God to break your heart and pour His compassion in and through you? The real compassion that could change the world. He is waiting for the world to see Him and He wants to use you to accomplish that. When will we realize that all the answers to the worlds problems live inside of each one of us?
It is Christ in us, the hope of glory (Col. 1:27)
We must go! We can no longer stand by waiting for someone else to do it. I am someone. You are someone. So what are you waiting for?
Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, Whom shall I send? And who will go for Us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (Isa. 6:8)
