Demonstration of Love

Written by Luz Leigh - 15 November 2009

As I sat in worship service this morning, my mind would try to wander from the songs we were singing although some were among my favorites. "True Love" talks about the day True Love (Jesus Christ) died ... but the wonderful news is that He returned. The grave could not hold him. "Lead me to the Cross" is such an uplifting hymn, so I began to leave the cares of the world behind and sit quietly waiting for His Word to be shared.

In his sermon the pastor spoke of how Demonstrations of Love (Christ) calls for Faith (us). In Luke 10 he called our attention to the parable of The Good Samaritan and how different ones responded to Jesus' Demonstrated Love. First there were the thieves who robbed and beat the man who was traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho, leaving him stripped of his clothing and half dead, laying beside the road. Their thoughts were "What's thine is mine and I'll take it." Then came the priest and the Levite who seemed to think, "What is mine is mine and I'll keep it." At last a despised Samaritan came upon the scene. And what a great response his was: "What is mine is thine and I'll give it." The Samaritan took pity on the poor man. He bandaged his wounds and took him to an inn, paid the innkeeper to care for him, saying he would return later to see if more payment were needed.

As Jesus concluded the parable, he asked "Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of the robbers?" Tonight I sit here listening to "My Cup has Overflowed," sung by Michael Combs. Although he never made a fortune, he worries not about that because he is happy anyhow. "Reaping better than I've sowed." Michael sings of how he is drinking from his saucer because his cup has overflowed. He thanks God for all the blessings he has received. Then he asks that he never become too busy to help those in need. This is such a simple song, but it has touched my heart.

My prayer is that I shall watch for the ones in need and be the "good Samaritan" in the name of the Lord and for His glory.

How many times do we not realize how our cup has overflowed? How many times have we passed on the other side of the road where someone is laying there in need of help?
