Jesus teaches us to have compassion for others. The Bible shows us how he had compassion for the sick, blind, hungry and poor. Jesus has compassion and forgiveness for us everyday. We might not immediately recognize it but he cares for his people. It is when people are at their lowest that they see his compassion and love for them more clearly. When a person is at their highpoint in life, they think they don’t need Jesus or his help. It is the time of troubles and sorrows that people tend to turn more toward Jesus and call upon his help and comfort during their times of distress and need.
I know Jesus has given me compassion, forgiveness and love in many circumstances in my life. I know this because I am still here. I don’t even want to think about where I would be without him in my life. I rely on his comfort and peace and that is where my hope comes from. Without Jesus there is no hope. Let me say that again. Without Jesus there is no hope. Jesus is our answer to every kind of happiness in the world. A few years ago I had to learn this the hard way. It was at my lowest point in my life where I had to rely on Jesus. Not that I knew really how to rely on him at first, but I learned how to. Like I said, it is at our lowest where we learn to trust in Jesus and realize that there is no other peace and comfort in our life other than from Jesus.
We cannot simply have peace alone. Jesus is our hope, peace and comfort. The thing is that a sinner doesn’t go to Jesus usually alone. They have to be guided and shown Jesus. They have to be told how Jesus is our answer for happiness. We don’t possess the strength we need in this life without trusting in the Almighty and what he can do for us. We may think we have everything we need, but no one can fully have peace without Jesus. With the knowledge and trusting in Christ Jesus our Lord, we can have eternal life.
As a nurse, I recently had a patient who had just been told they had cancer. It is hard to really comfort a person going through this type of ordeal without mentioning how Jesus can help them. How Jesus can heal. How Jesus can give us that peace we need. Showing comfort to those that hear that terrible terminal diagnosis; and trying with everything we can think of to help them realize that Jesus is with them, even when they are on their deathbed taking their last breath.
We should try to show Jesus to the world now. There are many that are hurting and struggling in this life. I see young girls and guys who have tried to take their life. All they see is that no longer want to live their life. …Enough to end it. I hope we can all try to comfort and show compassion to others. You never know what someone is facing in their life. That innocent looking 20 year old that seems fine, may be the one planning on taking her life because they are truly hurting.
If you don’t know Jesus, I highly recommend and suggest to you that you receive and accept Jesus as your Savior now, before you are on your deathbed. Jesus can give you happiness and peace in your life. Jesus is the answer. Pray now and ask him into your life.
