Sermon: Compassion

Watch Pastor Jeff Harris’ sermon from Sunday, November 1, 2015
“What Do We Believe? Compassion”
https://youtu.be/eLSAYz7ZjWM

Key Question
What about the poor and injustice?

Key Verse
Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Psalm 82:3-4

Why This Matters
God is the author of compassion.
Don’t let your Americanism affect your following of Christ.
One act of compassion and mercy can change the trajectory of a family.
Jesus modeled us toward a blessing.
You’ll be blessed if you hear and act.

Discussion Questions
What is your responsibility to other people? Where do your actions toward others not line up with God’s Word?
How did Jesus treat others – especially those in need? What part of Jesus’ command to “go and do likewise” is most difficult for you?
How does faith-based action actually grow your faith? What area of local compassion seems to be a fit for you?
