-You need a Shepherd, you cannot do what God has called you to do.
-Jesus has compassion for everyone because we are all broken.
Jesus called us to:
1.Love and minister to the lost with a reckless abandonment.
2.Those who are lost, have compassion on them for they do not have a Shepherd.
Mission impossible: Make disciples of all nations and to love as Christ loves you.
1.You cant do it
2.When you unhinge yourself from your desperate need for a Shepherd and try to function out of your competence or turn you back because of your lack of resources, you will never have compassion for people.
Compassion begins with an understanding that you need a Shepherd in your life.
3.Jesus is in-fact the Good Shepherd that changes everything.
*Exodus 3:14; John 10:7-11
