Brennan Manning passed away in the Spring of this year, April 12, 2013. His ministry and books have made a tremendous impact on my understanding of the gracious God revealed in Jesus of Nazareth.
He wrote many popular and influential books, including The Ragamuffin Gospel, Abba’s Child, Signature of Jesus, Ruthless Trust, The Wisdom of Tenderness, etc.
But it was a video of Manning sharing a message on the compassion of Jesus that caused me to break down in tears at my desk one afternoon. I had come to realize, in a much deeper way, how much God really loves me. I was forever changed in that moment. Seriously, I will never forget it.
I pray that you will take a moment of your time to consider the compassion of Jesus. The following typography video is an excerpt from that message.
Do you believe that the complete character of God has been revealed in Jesus? Do you know Jesus as the Son of compassion? Call on him today to meet you where you live. Believe that Jesus loves YOU.
