Maurice Roberts on Christ's "Deep Holy Instinct"

In the bosom of Christ, there is a deep holy instinct, a desire to save everybody, everywhere. There is that instinct within Him whereby He was activated by desire even for those that hated Him, even for the worst of men, even those He knew would never believe, yet, His overtures of compassion were extended to them. He was ready to do what they were not ready to receive.
From Maurice Roberts' sermon on Christ Weeping Over Jerusalem in Banner of Truth (August 15, 2003).
