Compassion Sunday

Today was “Compassion Sunday” at our church, Red Rocks Fellowship. The text for the sermon was 1 John 3:16-18:

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth. (NIV)

The compassion focus was on the ministry of Compassion International, a Christian organization that provides food, clothing, medical care, education, and hope for over 1,000,000 poor children worldwide. Here is the promotional video that was shown:

There are lots of children waiting for a sponsor. Your sponsorship gift of only $32 per month will lift a child out of the grip of poverty.

Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. (Proverbs 31:8, NIV)

Grace and Peace
