God’s Word describes Jesus as our King, our Judge, and our Lord. But Jesus also wants us to know Him as our friend. We’ll catch a glimpse in our study of Matthew chapter 9.
Rather than viewing the crowds as a nuisance, Jesus responded to them and the burdens they carried. In this brief text, we see what Jesus saw, how He felt, and what He did in response to those burdens. In seeing His heart for the hurting, we are also challenged to examine how we respond to the hurting around us.
