This Weekend – Most people have something or someone they would like to forget.   What would that be for you?  Jim Downey’s story will move you deeply.  He would give anything to forget the man who killed his police officer father.  He would give anything to forget the day there were flashing lights in his driveway with other officers there to deliver the terrible news.  What do we do with the unforgettable in our lives? Listen and perhaps find a possible answer.

Week 34 – 12/12/2016

New Look at an Old Story

Luke 10:25-31

This Week – The parable of the “Good Samaritan” in the gospel of Luke is definitely one of the most familiar stories in all of the New Testament”.  We even have laws in every state that are called, “Good Samaritan laws”, protecting people from legal action who stop to help someone who has been hurt or assaulted.  It’s a story many people can remember; we take a new look at this old story in a new way!

Monday (12/12) – We begin with a humorous story about my wanting to help someone I thought was in major trouble or danger. He was in neither!  But then I speculate about the times we are able to help someone who may truly be in danger or trouble, but we don’t.  We could give a helping hand, but we choose not to.  Sound familiar?

Tuesday (12/13) – Jesus has a lawyer of the day ask him a question.  He knew the answer but wanted to hear how Jesus answered the question.  Have you ever done that with someone? Perhaps he wanted to find fault with Jesus.  Luke says the lawyer was trying to “justify” himself in the eyes of Christ.  Isn’t that something we all do from time to time? Husband and wives do that with each other; children do that with parents.  To “justify” means to “render as righteous”.  We talk about that!

Wednesday (12/14) – In the story, a man is beaten and robbed on his way to Jerusalem.  Two religious people pass by and do nothing to help. But a man who was considered an outcast in the culture treats the man’s injuries and takes him to an inn to recuperate.  (He even tells the innkeeper that he will reimburse him for any extra expenses in treating him!)  Jesus holds this man up as a role model to you and me!

Thursday (12/15) – We quote the prayer of a minister I knew in Tucson, Arizona that he wrote three weeks before his tragic death.  It’s a man’s plea for God to use all of him in every way in every moment. It fleshes out this parable told be Jesus.  As you listen to it, how does his prayer speak to you in your life today?

Friday (12/16) – We close with the story of a young man who ran out of a theater thinking there was a fire.  Unfortunately, he ran out not even thinking to take with him his fiancé who was still in her seat when he returned!  An author commenting on the story said that the “fire” didn’t cause his cowardice; it simply revealed it.  What do you and I do that reveals what’s in our lives?  We connect that story with this passage in Luke.

    Luke 8: 22 – 25; Oct. 14, 2016
    Dear Randy,

    Your message from Luke about the storms of life and how Christ is in the boat through all weather was timely for me.
    My earthly father, Sherwood Alonzo Merchant Jr., is slowly dying in home hospice care. He has defied odds and lasted in his body much longer than anyone predicted. As the storm of death closes in on the family, I placed my iPhone on his pillow so Dad could hear the last section of the message that even in death Christ is in the boat with us.

    Thank you for this powerful message,

    God Bless you,

    Mark Sherwood Merchant

    Your preaching this week titled Conflict,Criticism, and Condemnation was a message the whole church and believers everywhere needs to hear! Slanderous accusations and bitterness breaks many a family and quenches the Holy Spirit in the church. It’s the tool Satan uses most effectively against the ministry of the Gospel! Please send me a CD of the whole message if it’s available.

    I love listening to ‘certain-key’ ministers on Sirius as I drive through Dallas traffic on my way to the office and home again each day. The oddest thing is, I get as much or more Christian-life insight from of your 5-minute talks with me (you do talk to me) as I do from many who preach for 30-minutes. You have a God given way of succinctly stating just what I need to hear each morning. How do you do that? I’m going to add you to four others to whom I send support because I know and believe you are the ‘real deal’ and I so enjoy you.

    My husband heard your message on the power of the tongue..he asked me to listen..we have been struggling after some harsh words exchagned. We are in very different places….with our faith I believe and it is my daily prayer for God to bring us closer together….to fill our hearts with the holy spirit to be kinder to each other. This message, for me, was a great place to start….it has allowed me to begin the forgiveness process and I am greatful for your ministry. Thank you.
