The Word - Week 6 - Won't You Be My Neighbor?

The Word

Speaker: Travis Fox
Date: August 07, 2016

We speak and hear potentially thousands of words each and every day. Some are more meaningful than others. We know that some words have the power to set us free from our fears, the ability to replace lies with truth and empower us to live transformed. Now imagine the God of the universe speaking directly to you. Imagine the impact that would make on your life right now! Fortunately for us, God has spoken, and His words are recorded for us in the Bible. But God didn't stop there, he actually came and walked among us! The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. Join us this summer as we discover from God's Word that it all points to Jesus, the Living Word and the power that Word has to change our lives. The Word: July 3rd - August 7th

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Luke 10:25-37

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 And behold, a lawyer stood up to put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?" 26 He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How do you read it?" 27 And he answered, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself." 28 And he said to him, "You have answered correctly; do this, and you will live."

29 But he, desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" 30 Jesus replied, "A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31 Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32 So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34 He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, 'Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.' 36 Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?" 37 He said, "The one who showed him mercy." And Jesus said to him, "You go, and do likewise."

Big Idea: Jesus is the Greater Samaritan Who Met Our Need
