Compassion and charity

Compassion and Charity


Jesus discipled the lost, healed the sick and fed the hungry.  Jesus demonstrated His love before telling people who He is.  Without the works, He knew people wouldn’t listen to His words.

  Jesus not only modeled the importance of caring for the helpless and hopeless, but He and His disciples regularly touted that as the first step toward living out – and even proving – our faith

Understanding that, the apostles followed Jesus’ model – discipling, healing and serving the hurting and helpless.  The early church emphasized that connection between compassion and evangelism – realizing people don’t care what Christians know unless they know we care.  For 1900 years, churches didn’t try to “outpreach” Jesus – they became the local food banks and homeless shelters.  They started most hospitals and schools.  They were seen as the proverbial spiritual and charitable “center of town”.  Church members gave knowing a significant percentage of their gifts would be poured back into caring for the poor and reaching the lost.
