The Good Samaritan

Lesson: While we were God's enemies, Christ died for us
1. Story:

2. Lesson:
  • In Jesus’ parable: it was not the religious and “good” people who stopped to help the Jewish man. It was the enemy — a despised Samaritan. The Jews hated the Samaritans.
  • The Samaritan could have walked on, and nobody would fault him for that. But he had compassion for the man. He cleaned and bandaged his wounds. Put him on his donkey and paid for his care at the inn.
  • Who would do that for an enemy? Somebody who hated you? Who wouldn’t walk on the same side of the road as you?
