Jesus loved and served the crowd that showed up in spite of the fact that His relative and ministry partner, John the Baptist, had just been cruelly beheaded.
Main idea: Serving like Jesus means putting our needs aside in order to help others.
What do we need in order to serve like Jesus?
The root of the Greek word translated as "compassion" is splanxna, which means the inner parts. To have compassion means to be stirred in your inner parts.
A great way to measure my compassion is to ask myself how burdened I am when I see the physical and spiritual needs of those around me.
Remember that in John 14:12, Jesus said He followers would do even great things than Him.
We must stop telling ourselves why God can't use us and begin exercising faith that He can and will work through us.
**Don't Miss This!** Jesus temporarily set aside His own needs to minister to others, but then He sent everyone away and went up on a mountainside to pray. We must spend time getting refueled by God in order to continue serving like Jesus.

Have you accepted Christ? Are you ready to take the next step in your relationship with Him? If you've never been baptized, you can register online today at at the link below. Baptism is how we, as a church, get to see your faith and obedience to God through Jesus. It encourages us when we hear how Jesus saved you and it encourages you by allowing us to celebrate this incredible step with you! .
