And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and
touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.
-- Mark 1 verse 41      (Kings James Bible)


    Jesus understanding first hand the sufferings of others,
    not only had a desire to help, but also had the power to
    do so.  His compassion extended well beyond their
    conditions, which often carried severe social and
    religious implications.  He also considered the hardship
    on the soul separated from God and wanted to restore
    that too.

    His compassion toward us is no different.  He is willing to
    make us clean and able to restore anew our relationship
    with God, if we seek Him for it.


May His Word reassure your hope today.

  • Mark 1 verses 40-42.
    40.  And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and
    kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou
    canst make me clean.
    41.  And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and
    touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.
    42.  And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy
    departed from him, and he was cleansed.

  • Hebrews 2 verses 17-18.
    17.  Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto
    his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in
    things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the
    people.
    18.  For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able
    to succour them that are tempted.

  • Hebrews 4 verses 15-16.
    15.  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with
    the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as
    we are, yet without sin.
    16.  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we
    may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
