Luke 10:25-37
Louis Tamburro
Generosity can be displayed through your time, talent, and treasures, but you’re going to fail at living that out. Both skeptics and believers are going to fail at being generous, fail at loving God and our neighbors, at the level we desire and Jesus requires. See the primary point of this parable is that we’re the lawyer. We’re all the lawyer, we’re all failing to love God and our neighbors with 100% dedication and perfection. We pass by people everyday, just like the lawyer, priest, and Levite. So none of us deserves eternal life in heaven, since none of us loves God and our neighbors at a level that’s worthy of heaven.
But the good news of the gospel is Jesus lived the perfect life we haven’t lived and died the death we deserved to die for our sins. The good news of the gospel is we’re really the person in the story who’s laying helpless in the ditch, half dead, needing somebody to save us. Our sins have robbed us, wounded us, left us for dead, but Jesus has compassion for us, stops to heal us, and raises us back to life. Jesus is the greater Samaritan who traveled The Bloody Road of the cross and gave up his entire life for us. City Awakening he saw you!...Jesus saw you...He saw you and couldn’t pass by you...He’s the greater Samaritan who saw you laying half dead in your sins, and came to save you. The more we see ourselves as the person on the side of the road in desperate need of a savior, and the more we see Jesus as the generous savior who’s willing to stop and save us, the more generous we’ll become. It’s because you can’t experience the kind of generosity the guy on the road experienced, and not be changed by it. A heart touched by grace, will extend grace...A heart touched by Jesus’ grace, will extend his grace...So let’s be generous with our time, talents, and treasures, because it’s Jesus who saw you, and was generous to you.
