This weekend at Eastbrook Church I continued our series, “Jesus on the Move,” with a messaged entitled, “Compassion” from Luke 8:40-56 and 9:37-43. These three stories from two chapters in Luke show us the wonder-working power of Jesus, but that wasn’t the focus of my message. Instead, I called us to step back and see the compassionate love of God wrapped all through and around Jesus’ interactions with people.
Also, join in with the weekday reading plan for this series here.
