When Jesus encountered a widow whose only son had died, His compassion moved Him to restore the son to life. In this sermon, drawn from the Gospel of Luke, the Reverend Dr. Timothy Delkeskamp of Ascension Lutheran Church in Thousand Oaks, CA, talks about the fact that beyond the miracle of the young man's being raised from the dead, there is the incredible power of Jesus' compassion. As Christians, we are called to bear each other's burdens. The origins of the word compassion tell us it's about feeling another's distress in our gut, as Pastor Tim describes. It is one of the greatest of emotions we can experience either as one giving or receiving. Hear and be inspired.
