Red – Living A Faith That Bleeds

Living a Faith That Bleeds part 1
Pastor Steve Lummer

“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ …..Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.” Luke 10:30 – 37

Why do we WALK PAST people who are in need?

NO HEART – No compassion
NO REWARD – No recognition
NO ROOM – No margin in our life for ministry

BE THE ANSWER TO SOMEONE’S PRAYER

Luke 10:33- “But a Samaritan” ….

HE SAW HIM
Vs. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.

HE WENT TO HIM
Vs.34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine

HE LIFTED HIM.
Vs. 35 Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him

HE LONG TERM LOVED HIM.
Vs. 35  The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

Being God’s Valentine by loving what He loves.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus Col. 3:10

“whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’  Matthew 25:40



When you look at people try to see Jesus in them – When you look at yourself try to see Jesus in the mirror.

Live a life of faith that bleeds Jesus.
