Seeing Others as the Lords Sees Them

When [Jesus] saw the crowds, He had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into the harvest field.” (Matthew 9:36-38)

The perspective that Jesus had of the crowds was more than a superficial view of their present situation. That is not to say that Jesus did not understand or wasn’t concerned with their immediate needs. He cared very much for their present physical suffering. Proof of this is the previous verse, Matthew 9:35: “Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.

However, His eternal perspective was not clouded by the crowd's immediate earthly needs. “Man does not live on bread alone (Matthew 4:4), or “What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world yet forfeits his soul? (Mark 8:36). Jesus knew that man has a much greater need than a quick fix for his physical needs. He saw the crowds from an eternal perspective. They were lost eternal souls in need of a Savior.

Created in God's image yet separated from Him because of sin, they desperately needed to be healed of sin's sting. Heal a dying man today and watch him die tomorrow. Share Christ with a dying man today, and if he believes on Christ, he will live forever.

Question: Do you view people the way God views people?

Challenge: Ask God to help you see the lost as He sees them.Lord, help me to see others the way YOU see them.

Prayer: Lord, help me to see others the way you see them.
