Zac Poonen: Manifesting the Holiness and Compassion of God
Jesus said: “I desire compassion and not sacrifice.” One of the dangers the pharisees had was they lacked compassion because they were so righteous. One of the dangers we can face in pursuing righteousness is the lack compassion for sinners, backsliders, evil people, and even compromisers. We don’t have to compromise with them. Jesus sat among sinners. There was no sin in Him. He went there and He told them the truth. So we should act with a lot of compassion to a lot of people who are backsliders or who don’t agree with the truth and we don’t leave them in that condition. That can be our ministry. Jesus could go in their midst and save them. He said: “I did not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”
