Go and do likewise

Thứ hai - 09/10/2017 20:12
‘To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.’
 
“GO AND DO LIKEWISE”
 
‘To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.’

Who is in control of God’s grace in our lives? Today’s Gospel story really focuses on a Jew who had been attacked, hurt and literally was left almost dead on the street. Two potential helpers pass by without helping the man. The person who eventually shows up and has compassion for this injured person is a Samaritan. To understand the real impact of this story for us is this. Samaritans and Jews, had hated one another for centuries. An injured Jew would rather die than accept help from a Samaritan. But, the Jew in this story had no choice. He is not in control. This is the real point Jesus Christ is making. God can choose anyone to mediate grace to us, even someone we hate and consider totally unworthy to be an instrument of His grace.  We are just like the injured man lying along the side of the street. This is our story as well. The only thing we can do is be open and to be generous as the Samaritan was.
 
Our challenge today is: May we be open to all God’s people, and to allow God’s grace to be at work?  Today is a good day to spend some time noticing all that we have been given and resolve to pass some of it along. Jesus said, “Go and do likewise.”
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Concentrate on this Sentence: ‘To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.’ When God takes something from your grasp, He’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this Sentence.
 
“The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.”
