The Compassion of Jesus

Sunday (6/25), gather with your church family as we continue our series in the gospel according to Matthew (9:18-38). It is the first of four gospels that chronicle the birth, life, ministry, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Matthew concludes chapter nine with a summary of Jesus’ ministry in Capernaum. He writes that Jesus proclaimed the good news of the kingdom. He taught in the Synagogues and healed everyone sick, diseased, or oppressed by the devil.
As Jesus ministered to the tens of thousands of people, Matthew records that He had compassion on them because they were harassed and helpless like sheep without a shepherd. Their religious leaders had failed them, their traditions were powerless, and life had become a matter of daily survival.

At that time, Jesus told His disciples to pray for God to call and anoint people with the power of the Holy Spirit, who understood who He was and what He was able and willing to do.

Later, Jesus said something similar to those in the upper room with Him the night before He went to the cross. He said this, reflecting back upon all the ministry among the people that had taken place, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it” (Jo 14:12-14).

I look forward to our time together. Please pray for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon the entire Calvary Chapel family.
There are several opportunities for worship. On-campus (10:00 am), drive-in church (92.1fm), and online (Facebook, YouTube: Calvary Inverness); (website:
