The Good Samaritan

Passage: Luke 10:25-37

Join us this morning as we look at what it means to build our relationships upon The Rock. We learn from the story of the Good Samaritan that by building our relationships upon the Rock are stronger. These are non-judgemental relationships, and they give us the opportunity to see other people's priorities. The Good Samaritan makes other people's needs his priority.

Sometimes in a healthy relationship there is a balance of the priorities - it shouldn't be one-way. The Good Samaritan continues with his journey after taking the traveller to the inn, balancing his priorities.

Who do you most identify with? Do you feel like the Levite or the Priest, where sometimes you can be a bit judgemental? Or perhaps you feel like the Samaritan? If you're feeling a bit like the Levite, or the Priest, or the robbers, maybe you might want to come to God, a God who saves. Maybe you want to adjust the balance in your life, loving your neighbours as yourself.

Favourite song

This week we speak to Joyce who's favourite song is Be Still for the Presence of the Lord which speaks to her and her husband. It's also very appropriate in the current time, reminding us that the Lord is moving wherever we are.


Today's reading is the parable of the Good Samaritan, from Luke 10:25-37, read by Kathy.


During the service we also partake in communion from our homes, and you are welcome to join us - if you don't have bread or wine, feel free to use what you have available.

Share with us

We would love to see what you've been up to, and how God has been revealing himself to you in these times. There's more detail about how you can do this available.
