The Compassion of Jesus

Jesus says in effect:  "Come to Me.  Come now.  Don't wait until you have your act cleaned up and your head on straight.  Don't delay until you think you are properly disposed and free of pride and lust, jealousy and self-hatred.   Come to me in your brokenness and sinfulness, with all your fears and insecurities, and I will comfort you.  I will come to you right where you live and love you just the way you are, and not the way you think you should be."
