"The Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost."
- Luke 19:10
 
The Son of Man was Jesus' own preferred way of referring to Himself. He used this name no less than eighty-five times in the brief Gospel record, much more frequently than any other.  Yes, Jesus Christ is the Son of Man! This name signifies, among other things, that He and His mission are not limited to a single nation or race. His religion is one that has a universal appeal. All other religions are more or less national or racial in scope.
 
There is no world-wide appeal in Judaism, Buddhism, Brahmanism, Mohammedanism, and . . .

There is no world-wide appeal in Judaism, Buddhism, Brahmanism, Mohammedanism, and the like. But Jesus Christ is the Son of Man, and His religion is the religion for all the sons of men. For that reason too, Jesus bids us to go into all the world with His saving Gospel.
 
This gospel goes on to tell us about Zacchaeus. Jesus saw him as a sinner with an empty hole that only He could fill, and through His kindness Zacchaeus was transformed. Jesus views everyone as significant. Zacchaeus was a dishonest tax collector and Jesus could have ignored him, but He saw him in the tree and called him by name and told him He was going to eat with him.
 
Christian friends, It's important that we as Christians acknowledge others as people with value. A Christian who doesn't merely see but looks at another, communicates to that person that he is being recognized as a human being in an impersonal world of objects. Do the people we interact with know that we view them as valuable to us and to God? Burdened people everywhere need to know what Christ has done; they need to feel God's love and care. It was for them He sent His Son.
 
We need to see through Jesus' eyes
Our neighbors who are lost;
For then we will reach out to them,
Regardless of the cost.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY -  True compassion will put love into action.
