Sermons about Compassion
Peter tells us to have a "ready defense". What does this mean? How do we prepare for the attack? Tonight, we discuss what a ready defense is and how having one will strengthen your walk with Christ.
Jesus, the Truth, saw the blind man. He stopped. The disciples avoided the engagement with the blind man by trying to engage Jesus in a theological debate about the blind man. But Jesus said, See what God will do. He re-engaged with the blind man, healed him and restored him in society. Charity isn't so much about debating the issues affecting others (there is a time and place for that, but that is not when you're in the presence of the "other" person), as it is about responding in compassion in the here and now. The truth of compassion and charity is living and active throughout history and this incident in Jesus' life demonstrates God's way of dealing with human need.

If they know that we care they will listen to what we have to say.

This is an introduction to the upcoming sermon series on the book of 1 Thessalonians. In this sermon we look into the historical background of the book, get a brief overview of the content in the book, and conclude with a call to ask God to give us a heart like Paul so that we will have a growing concern for the spiritual well-being of others and begin to tell them and about Jesus.
