TOPIC: Human Nature (5): Compassionate

2nd Sunday after Easter
April 26, 2020


SUB-THEME:           The Humanity of Christ 9

TEXT:                        Mark 6:34


AIM: To teach us the compassionate nature of Christ and its implications for Christians.


INTRODUCTION: The word compassion is defined as “being sympathetic, having pity and concern for the suffering or misfortunes of others.” The Scripture shows us in many places how compassionate Christ is. At the sight of the multitude that had followed Him in the course of His earthly ministry, He was always desirous to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the helpless and hopeless people.



  1. From the following passages, discuss the compassionate nature of Christ: Matt 9:35-38; Mark 6:34; Luke 9:11-17
  2. What comfort should or can we draw from the compassion of Christ, in the midst of our lives challenges? Heb. 4:15; 1Pet. 5:7
  3. What does the parable of the Good Samaritan teach us about compassion as believers? Luke 10:25-37
  4. Discuss the ways we can practice compassion today as believers in Christ


CONCLUSION: Our Lord is indeed a compassionate God. While on earth, He did not take care of only the spiritual needs of people around Him, but their physical needs as well. Let us learn to follow His example.


FOOD FOR THOUGHT:    Being born again is not only measured by manifestation of spiritual gifts.

MEMORY VERSE: Heb 4:15For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin”.
