‘Live the way Jesus lived and
love the way Jesus loved

The Good Samaritan
Luke 10:30-37

1. The Story. Jesus focused on . . .
A. The Unconcerned. Lk 10:30-31
—  Aware but won’t be  inconveniencedPass by on the other side.

B. The Uninvolved. Lk 10:32
—  The levite looked out of curiosity.  A rubber necker.  Wanted to see how bad it was,  as long as he didn’t have to be the one to respond to the need.
—  By contrast we tell people that we’ll pray for them,  but it’s really only an exit statement.
C. The Unexpected. Lk 10:33-37
—  Which of the three dies Jesus want you to be?
1)  There was a race issue. Samaritans were hated.
2)  There was a response issue. When everyone else walked away,  he walked in and took action.
3)  There was a radical response. A display if love.

4)  Spend whatever it takes
