In this very familiar story that we call “The Parable of the Good Samaritan” Jesus gives us an example to follow of love in action for all people, even those who have wronged us. When we allow ourselves to be immersed in God’s love, God can turn all our pain and suffering into compassion and actively caring for others. Amazing grace!
To follow Jesus, we must leave the comforts of home and and move into uncharted waters.
How can we follow what we don't understand? Sometimes we have to surrender to a love and presence that we don't fully understand.
The Holy Spirit is God himself as he promises to be with us in all instances of life. Bur are we abiding in him?
We are not left alone in the world. Jesus stands with us, giving us the peace that is much more than the world would give us.
Those who follow Jesus have a willingness to let light shine through the crevices of their questions and doubts.
All the bits and pieces of life that we deem incomplete and unworthy, God can gather and transform into a new life and a new Kingdom.
