The story of the Good Samaritan.

Victim - a certain man - a person was targeted by evil

Suspect - robbers

Crime - shamed (stripped) and wounded (battery/abused)


Are you the Good Samaritan who saw with compassion, or just a religious person seeing without God's compassion or command to see as you would see needs in yourself?

What did he do? What is the Biblical Model?

Saw the need, with compassion.  Was the man judged for being a victim?

Poured oil and wine - elements of healing.  Oil represents the Holy Spirit.  Through the Holy Spirit the Word of God, it can "restore the soul" (Psalm 23).

Brought him to an inn - a safe place.

Invested in the victim with his treasures.

What does God want you to do for victim's who have been shamed and wounded?

Luke 10:25-37 KJV  And, behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?  (26)  He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou?  (27)  And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.  (28)  And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.  (29)  But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?  (30)  And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead.  (31)  And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.  (32)  And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.  (33)  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,  (34)  And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him.  (35)  And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee.  (36)  Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?  (37)  And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.
