In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?” The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.” Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:30-37
Using Luke 10:30-37 as background:
**Ask God at the beginning of your day, as well as the end of your day, to help you answer the following 5 questions for the next 7 days:
1.What needs have I recognized and responded to around me?
2.What pressure in or upon me have I responded to by resting in Jesus?
3.What truth has God revealed to me that I have confessed to Him and allowed to change what I do?
4.What opportunity has God placed before me to join Him in doing?
5.Who has God brought across my path that He instructed me to tell about His activity in my life?
**Record your answers and impressions in a journal or paper
**Be ready and willing to talk about how participating in church should impact your life in the weeks that follow.
Are you in a church? Do you belong to a church family? The size of the church does not matter.
‘For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
