Here is an example of the Sacrificial Love Jesus Christ has for you. You have been attacked by robbers. You have been stripped, beaten and left half-dead before encountering the Good Samaritan.
Both the Priest and the Levite passed you by. This is like living a religious life following all the rules by trying to earn approval. They will pass you by. It is not until you meet the Sacrificial Love offered by the Good Samaritan does healing, redemption and deliverance happen.
30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A 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. Luke 10:30-32
God’s love, grace and mercy is demonstrated through Jesus Christ as the Good Samaritan. The law could not save mankind. Jesus Christ with HIS Sacrificial Love as the Good Samaritan can bandage your wounds of discouragement, emotional scars, hurt, rejection, and sickness and pour Devine Healing on you.
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, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii 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.’ Luke 10:33-35
Jesus Christ paid the full price with HIS Sacrificial Love for all mankind to heal you, restore you and redeem you.
While you were born into rebellion against God, attacked by the robber (Satan) which filled you with selfish desire, pride, and arrogance desiring to be independent, Christ died for you and shed HIS Sacrificial Blood for you and all mankind.
Jesus Christ loves you! Receive HIS LOVE and go LOVE as HE loved you! Go and demonstrate Sacrificial Love today! Pay the price of Sacrificial Love. Die to self-will and seek to bring healing to others through God’s Sacrificial Love working in and through you.
God loves you.
