Are You A Neighbor? (Luke 10:25-37)Tommy Boring, January 13, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
A lot of times we try to justify ourselves instead of trusting that God knows best. God knows everything about so He knows when we are trying to get out of doing something we aught not do. You'll never be right with God if you're not right with someone else. So who is your neighbor? Your neighbor is anyone that you come into contact with. We can't mark people off or right them off because they look, act or smell a certain.
Are you a neighbor? Are you in the position to where you allow things to blind you from loving someone? Are you loving others as you love yourself? Are you actively involved with others showing them that Christ died for them just as He died for you? We have NEVER merited Gods love for us. We have no right to Christ. Christ bled and died for everyone and not just a select few. How far are you willing to go? Most have a certain amount of compassion but it's limited. Once that limit is met then the compassion ends and goes no further.
You realize that Christ was the neighbor that noticed you in the ditch, cut up, bruised and bullied by the world and yet He got in the ditch with you and rescued you! He came to where you were and lifted you up! Every unbeliever is on their way to death faster and faster with each breath they take. But Christ is reaching down to the lost and asking to just take a His hand. He will pull them out of the ditch they are in and set them on a full of life path.
