The Good Samaritan

You have all heard the story of The Good Samaritan, yet now hear the story as it pertains to you, to me, to all. Praise the Lord. Receive the revelation and may Christ Himself settle this word in your heart to be a wellspring of life if indeed it is truth. Amen. With that said, I now invite you Into My HEART...

Now Jesus spoke to His audience concerning a man who was robbed, beaten and left by the wayside to die. And a Levite and a priest came by seeing him in his deathly state and crossed to the other side in which was most detestable before the eyes of God and most shameful upon their testimony and witness as supposed men of God.

Now a Samaritan and here’s the revelation, as you have not seen it, comes along, sees this man who is within an inch of death, takes him and cares for him and leaves him to recover, making payment and arrangement with another so this man who was looked upon and despised by two might be saved by the third. 

Now we know a Samaritan by definition of the Word is one in whom is despised by Jews, one in whom does not worship God in truth and spirit as the Jewish nation does and can. Yet this Samaritan is neither foreign to true worship or the heart of God. This Samaritan is not one who is without the Jewish joys of knowing the Lord. This Samaritan begins as just a mere stranger to one who was in desperate need and this Samaritan is one who is at the right place at the right time for God made it so. 

This Samaritan is our Samaritan. This Samaritan is our stranger. This Samaritan is none other than Christ Himself. He is the Stranger sent by God to come to our aid as we have been robbed, beaten and left for dead by the wayside from the lust of the world, our sinful ways and the deceit of Satan. 

For he Satan, comes according to the Word, to steal (we were robbed), kill (we were deathly beaten and fatally wounded) and destroyed (we were left for dead by the wayside), and yet our Samaritan came to us in our great need and did not so much as disregard us, nor did we say, ‘Stranger, give me a drink and it is enough. Go on your way, or Stranger, give me a small morsel of food and it is enough. Go on your way.’

Our voice was ill and faint. Our need was desperate and our time was fading away and here comes a Stranger sent by God and not one who walked in the pomp of religion, but as the One who knew the joys of the Lord and not one who only knew of the Lord and kept Him to himself.

Our Samaritan, Jesus is His name, came to our need, carried our sin and paid the required price that we would be saved! And in that, it is enough! Halleluyah!

And you can be sure of this, the man left for dead started knowing the kindness of a stranger but ended knowing the joy of a friend. Praise the Lord! For our Samaritan was our Stranger in our need and now He is our eternal Friend in Christ the Lord. Halleluyah! Thank you Lord for showing this to me, to them, to all of us. You are oh so good to all of us and may we, I pray, all know the joys forevermore to have you as a friend. Amen.
