A Compassionate Life
Born from a place of experiencing the magnitude of Gods love, grace, and mercy under the power of the Holy Spirit living in us, we are compelled to bring that same experience of God to others. Jesus told the crowds that the “kingdom of God is at hand” (Matthew 3:2). In a way, when we seek to bring compassion to the world, we are demonstrating what the kingdom of God is like. One of the key characteristics of the kingdom is shalom.
Shalom is ancient Hebrew concept of peace. But more is meant than peace it is a sense of wholeness, completeness, soundness, health, safety and prosperity. Shalom is manifested in relationships, starting with our relationship with God, but also relationship with self, family, community, creation, societal structures and nations. The kingdom of God just looks so different when you consider the magnitude of shalom in all of life. Our role as disciples of Jesus is to bring this kingdom of God characterized by shalom to all of life.
