Who Is My Neighbor?

David Drees

 

 

The question seems simple enough, God says love your neighbor… so who is that, I sure would hate to mess that up!  But the simplicity of the Greatest Commandment, makes that question completely unneeded.  The better question, isn’t to ask “who should I love” but instead ask Jesus “Who am I?”  You see the famous parable of the Good Samaritan is less about who represents our neighbor and more to do with, what kind of people are we?

 

After hearing this sermon, we hope you will ask yourself where you are reluctant to love and try to discover the root sin that underlies it.  It may be painful… but it is so worth it!

Who Is My Neighbor Who Believes Differently Than Me?

Pastor Steve Brown

 

God loves all people and desires that all people be saved. We are answering questions that we submitted on the wrestling with God cards: How should we feel about Muslims? What about Christians vs. Muslims. Although we will not limit ourselves to the relationship between Christians and Muslims, current events give us this poignant experience to seek to understand how to understand Jesus’ Parable of the Good Samaritan when it comes to our neighbors who believe differently than us.

 

After hearing this sermon, we hope you will pray for God to move us to love all people, especially Muslims, as God loves them and to desire that they be saved.

 

Lessons: Isaiah 49:5-6, 1 Timothy 2:1-7, Luke 10:25-37
