And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9:35-36)
When I think about these verses I can’t help but think about all the people in our world today that are living their life apart from Jesus. In essence they are helpless. They are spiritually lost and they keep looking for life’s purpose in the wrong places. Jesus provides a way for all people to live purposely and intentionally to glorify God. Living for Jesus will bring joy and satisfaction.
Pray today for the Lord to open your eyes and heart to the things that honor Him. When our life reflects Christ we display to others our life’s purpose and points them to Christ who is our Shepherd.
Let’s serve Christ together today!
