(KJV.) ST. LUKE 7:13-15
(13) And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.
(14) And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.
(15) And he that was dead sat up and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.
WEEP NOT, ARISE AND SHINE!
Brethren, each and every soul has an attribute of compassion within their spirits: case in point, our Father is a father of love, merciful, and compassionate; therefore, when iniquities overwhelmed the world, he gave his only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, crucified, died, and rose again from the dead, to pay for our past, present, and future iniquities, that whosoever believes in him, should not perish in damnation, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16); inferentially, Jesus and our Father are one. (John 10:30); therefore, Jesus possess the same attributes as our Father; subsequently, the breath of our Father engineers our mortal bodies, also, the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit, lives within the hearts of believers; therefore, there is a trace of compassion in every soul, saved or unsaved; there are unbelievers who are compassionate as well as believers, though they do not yet believe in Jesus Christ: therefore, as believers, let us walk in the footsteps, of Christ, do what he will do, love and be compassionate toward one another, shine as lights to the world of darkness.
In the above text, Jesus went into a city called Nain, with many of his disciples and others; when he came closer to the city, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of a widow; when Jesus saw her, his bowels yearned and had compassion on her, he said unto the widow, "Weep not!"; what an encouragement; today, Jesus is saying to everyone that is upset about any type of situation; "Weep not!"; but trust and believe in him, that it is all done, and it shall be well again, whatever has gotten you down is not heavy at all compared to his cross, but he overcame the cross so we do not have to carry our own crosses upon our shoulders, give everything to him, rest and have peace within your souls: furthermore, Jesus went closer and touch the coffin; you see! the moment we overload our burdens unto him through prayers and supplications, that is when he moves closer, to take care of our predicaments; therefore, regardless of how we feel about our situations, today, let us surrender our problems unto him, hands up, have him take the steering wheels of our lives and drive on into peace; when Jesus touched the coffin, the people that were carrying it, stood still; therefore, when we overload our burdens upon the shoulders of Jesus Christ; let us be still and know that it is done, wait for manifestations; when we wait patiently, trust in him, instantaneously, we receive victories by his death and resurrection; Jesus said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise! and immediately, the dead sat up, and began to speak, and he delivered him to his mother; miraculously, Jesus spoke to the dead young man, he heard his voice and became alive; therefore, today, everything that is dead in our lives, as Jesus have taken control of our lives, those things are all alive, doors that were shut closed before are now opened, and mountains of difficulties have been brought down low to ground levels, that we walk in the victory of Jesus Christ, valleys of despairs are filled with thanksgivings, praises, joy and peace, we are delivered by the blood of Jesus forevermore; therefore, let us rejoice and be exceedingly glad, give thanks, praises and adoration to our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior forevermore: Amen!
Dearly beloved, regardless of what overwhelmed our souls in the past; today, we are delivered by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit; believe, receive it, and wait for manifestations; while we wait upon the Lord, let us give thanks, praise his Holy Name, for his love, mercies, and compassion that never fails, but endures forever and evermore. Be ye, therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. (Luke 6:36). Amen and Amen!
QUOTES OF THE DAY:
(KJV.) Hebrews 4:15-16 For we have not a 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. Let us, therefore, come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
