My sermon title for Sunday was; A Good Neighbor in a Bad Neighborhood. In question form it could be; How can you be a good friend in today's ungodly culture? Let's start by taking a look at, The Parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-29
On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
Jesus said the greatest thing you could do was love God and then love your neighbor as yourself. This was the key to inheriting eternal life; Love Jesus (make Him Lord) and be faithful (live in obedience) to His teaching. Do this and you will live. Amen?
