There is a cost involved in ministry. The question is, Are we willing to pay it? In the story of the Good Samaritan there are three people who have the opportunity to rescue the man beaten in the ditch. The first two looked but didn’t stop to help, but the Samaritan saved the man. What happened here?
Priest -There are chores about the house but the work is in the fields.
Levite - Time to look but not concerned, caring, or moved to act
The Samaritan was busy but had compassion He was concerned, and acted. This represents God’s love in action.
Who are you in this story?
It’s good to be religious, but are you just acting, practicing or applying it? Remember that Religion that costs you nothing is worth nothing –dead faith (James1:17)
Jesus said to, “Live a life for Jesus, go in faith, and do God’s will always. Amen?
