At Lazarus’ graveside Jesus wept. Not because he could not raise Lazarus from the dead (He did) but because he was moved with compassion for the people He came to save. (John 11:35)
When Jesus passed by a funeral position of a young man and saw his mother crying, moved with compassion, his heart went out to her and he said, “Don’t cry.” On Jesus’ command the dead man sat up and began to talk, and Jesus gave him back to his mother. (Luke 7:13-15)
Moved with compassion Jesus healed the eyes of the blind (Matthew 20:34) and a man with leprosy (Mark 1:40-45).
Moved with compassion, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.” (John 21:25)
Easter, we celebrate Jesus greatest act of compassion when His compassion moved to passion and he nailed our sins to the cross.
