On Sunday morning, 12 August 2018, at our Celebration Service, Pastor Darrel Scheffers ministered on knowing that God is full of compassion, great in mercy and slow to anger. See the notes below.
Our Compassionate God:

Psalm 145:8-9

The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works”

  • It’s better to have the heart of someone than to have their money.
  • I am not an island. I will need people, even if right now, I don’t think I do.
  • God expresses Himself and exposes His heart in His Word through His actions.

Matthew 5:45

“That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.”

  • When I have the character of God I will even love those who doesn’t have an experience with my God.
  • We should never curse people. Don’t pray against people.
  • God doesn’t operate on a hate level. He is full of compassion and mercy.
  • If God had to get angry quickly, I wouldn’t be here anymore. God is slow to anger.
  • Be careful what words you speak over your relationships and life.
  • In the last days Satan will use anger against you. Satan shows no mercy while he takes you out.
  • Jesus was always moved with compassion.
  • Many times you’re good to people and they take advantage of you.
  • People are frail and have faults, but we shouldn’t punish someone for something someone else did.
  • God never stops caring for me.
  • We can no longer be moved by our feelings.
  • Demonstrate the love of God.
  • I must allow God to use me to be a vessel of honour.
  • Matthew 14
  • Matthew 20
  • Matthew 9

Matthew 10:8

“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”

  • It’s really hard to take a gift to someone who hurt you.
  • Can you take of your money and bless someone who hates and hurt you?
  • There’s nothing wrong with the person, sometimes our windows are dirty.
  • Sometimes we do stuff and we think it’s the right thing. Only the Spirit of God can open our eyes.
  • Sometimes in life, things clutter our view.
  • The world is running around trying to fill a void.
  • The mind and heart doesn’t speak the same language.
  • What you fight in your mind is real.
  • Jesus is not moved by me giving or not. He has everything already.
  • I don’t need a Judas (money) because many time he will betray you.
  • Work can become your Judas.
  • The goodness of Jesus leads people to repentance.
  • When you throw someone out, you don’t know who you are throwing the person out to.
  • Who told you that you’re perfect? Stop living life in a glass box of judgment towards others.
  • A righteous man falls, but gets up again.
  • What does it help if you get inspired but not matured?
  • The world caters for everyone.
  • Jesus says, there is only one door. Jesus is the door.
  • If there is only one door then you should be able to fit into it.
  • You can walk thinking that you are right, but the test will determine.
  • Repentance, forgiveness, mercy and compassion’s fits.
  • It’s not how much you pray, it’s how you pray.
  • If you’re not happy with where you are at, do something about it.
  • When you are effective you become dangerous to the kingdom of Satan.
  • Let go of the past.
  • Don’t bring someone’s past up.
  • The enemy will always try to use the people closest to you to hurt you the most.
  • When you show grace, mercy and compassion there is no place for judgement.
