Scripture for the Day

Luke 10:25-37 says, And behold, a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him, saying, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?”
He said to him, “What is written in the law? What is your reading of it?”
So he answered and said, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,’ and ‘your neighbor as yourself.'”
And He said to him, “You have answered rightly; do this and you will live.”
But he, wanting to justify himself, said to Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
Then Jesus answered and said: “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a certain priest came down that road. And when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite, when he arrived at the place, came and looked, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was. And when he saw him, he had compassion. So he went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine; and he set him on his own animal, brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, gave them to the innkeeper, and said to him, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I come again, I will repay you.’ So which of these three do you think was neighbor to him who fell among the thieves?”
And he said, “He who showed mercy on him.”
Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”

There is a lot of truth that is within this parable. There is one that clearly shows God’s perspective on inheriting life. We see through the Lord’s understanding, that at this point in history, the religious sect was rejecting God’s people that were in bondage to the thief. Leaving them for dead. They were not paying the price to give their life to His people. Nevertheless, Jesus clearly shows the mosaic lawyer through the example of the Samaritan, that you do not have to be apart of a religious organization in order to render God’s mercy to people who are in need or in bondage. This clearly shows that heavens attention is turned toward an individual that is releasing mercy at a time that is not convenient, or socially appropriate. God looks down and grants prosperity, favor, and power in every aspect of that person’s life. For that person is releasing His son’s nature. This is a true Christian.

    Wow, this is the third time in the last two weeks that this message has come to me. Oct 2 Mel Tari spoke on the good Samaritan. The next day Heidi Baker shared on the same text (“Love them to Life” conference). One more between then and now and now yours. The Lord is really driven home the message of having enough of Him to “Love the one”. Thank you.
