The parable of – “Do This and You Will Live”

Posted: November 18, 2011 in Family/ kids and environments, The Kingdom of God, The Love of Jesus Christ

“Do This and You Will Live” – is the speech of Jesus Christ.
This is another ways to get healings for broken hearts, wounds and things to deal in one’s own life, and it is by DOING, there are many different Jesus spoke in this parable; caring, giving our lives, providing, serving and so on.

Below is the parable of “Do This and You Will Live ” (Luke 10:25-37)

On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
“What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”
He answered: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”
“You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”
In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he fell into the hands of robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, took him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two silver coins 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.’
“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”
Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

So, we might have different wounds, hurts, pain in one’s own life where some parts of our souls might be dead, when we did as the Samaritan did in this parable, when we show love to others, when we help the wounded people, take care of them either in the streets or somewhere we find on the roadside, when we serve and show love in action we can receive the same blessings we give out for our own souls and spirit, it brought healings, bind up our wounds and strengthen even our own life. They might be somethings that are uncomfortable, but if we go out from our own comfort zone to serve these people, or as we saw in the street, talk with them, chat with them, sit with them, buy foods for them, give them clothes to wear and care for them, it will bring healings for our ownself as well. Many times we will also need to do something we don’t usually do personally, sometimes we will need to go extra efforts and uncomfortable from our comfort zones, but those things bring healings, though those things might not mean being too soft, but it means to serve them out of love, and that is one of the key to bring healings for our own personal life as well.

So, it is by ‘Doing’ according to this parable.

Though in numbers of cases, it might not work as much as “listening to one another” and the “prophetic revelations and God ministering to us” or it may just be apart of the ways healings can come, but these kinds of works can bring amount of healing for the soul and spirit as well, when we do them with all our hearts giving our lives and sacrificing.
