This morning we are continuing our “Neighbourhood Watch” Series.
In this series we are exploring one of the most famous stories Jesus told. You’ve probably heard of it, even if you didn’t know the story was told by Jesus… it’s called The Good Samaritan.
This story seems to simply be a description of how to treat your neighbour. But it’s more than that, it’s a story about God’s amazing grace, a grace that can empower us and enable us to be the kind of neighbors we were created to be.
Last week we looked at 2 different ways the story can be read. One perspective that we need to be ultra-good to please God. The 2nd perspective, and the one Jesus was highlighting, is an example of God’s gift of complete, undeserved and limitless grace.
This morning we’re going to explore how this story came about and how it might impact you and me.
