This Sunday, we will wrap up our series with the Good Samaritan and how we should be loving our neighbors. We will discover that the kind of love Jesus calls us to is risky, uncomfortable, and can be costly. Join us as we venture back to Luke 10 and see the depth of love and compassion that we should have for those around us.
Have you ever felt unwelcomed? Maybe it was at a place of business or a party where you only knew one other person. I think most of us have experienced an unsociable environment. However, Jesus was the ultimate host; He was hospitable toward others. This Sunday, we will look at a famous passage in Luke 19 and watch as Jesus opens His arms wide to someone who had been pushed to the margins.
Incredibly, Jesus was asked one time, "Who is my neighbor?" Obviously this person had never watched Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. Mr. Rogers would answer this question by saying, " . . . Your neighbor is anyone you happen to be with at any time in your life." Jesus brilliantly answered this question with the parable of the Good Samaritan.
