Bible Versions:

Matthew 9:36 (NTL) — 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Matthew 9:36 (NIV) — 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Matthew 9:36 (MSG) — 36 When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd.

Thoughts of Devotion:

When seeing the need in this world, what do we feel and what is our attitude toward the need in it? It is impossible to live in this world and not see the misery and the state of sin in which humanity lives, a society that is so needy of the Gospel! It is a lost world that surrounds us, multitudes of people that are lost without hope in today’s world. A humanity bound by the enemy, lost and without comfort. Like in the times of Jesus when his eyes of compassion saw the great need,”When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.” (v.36 NLT)

What moved Jesus was compassion, a strong feeling of seeing the suffering of those that were like sheep without a Shepard. A passion that goes beyond feeling sorry, and saying poor them. But a passion that gives light to action and doing something about the need. On various occasions it was this passion in the life of Jesus that moved him toward action,Now Jesus called His disciples to Himself and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.” (Matthew 15:32). Jesus was continually teaching his disciples the importance of having a genuine and sincere passion for humanity that is lost without hope.

The Lords desire was that they wouldn’t only obey a commandment, or a commission to “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” (Matthew 28:19). But that taking the message would be a direct result of the passion and zeal that they had in their hearts. In the same way we need this passion today. To win souls should be more then obeying a commandment! It should be a living desire, a passion that burns in our hearts to take this message of hope to such a needy world.

Foundational Scriptures:

Matthew 14:14 (NKJV) — 14 And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them, and healed their sick.

Matthew 15:32 (NKJV) — 32 Now Jesus called His disciples to Himself and said, “I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now continued with Me three days and have nothing to eat. And I do not want to send them away hungry, lest they faint on the way.”

Matthew 20:34 (NKJV) — 34 So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.

Romans 9:1–3 (NKJV) — 1 I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh,
