The Hope of the Cross IV
v.11 Soon afterward, Jesus went to Nain.
v.12 As he approached the town gate,
a dead person was being carried out –
the only son of his mother, and she a widow.
v.13 When the Lord saw her,
his heart went out to her … “Don’t cry.”
v.14 Then he went up and touched the coffin …
He said, “Young man, I say to you get up!”
v.15 The dead man sat up and began to talk …
v.16 … “God has come to help his people.”
The Hope of the Cross –
The people said “God has come to help his people.”
1- The Heart of God -
there is no greater symbol of “the heart of God”
than the cross!!!
2- The Compassion of Christ –
there is not greater symbol of “the compassion of
Christ” than the cross!!!
3- “God has come to help his people” !!!
