Pilgrim Uniting Church, Adelaide SA
SUN 14-JUL-2019 - 11.00 AM Sermon
Rev Dr Phil Carr
Pentecost 5 – "Please don't explain, just show me" – The parable of the Good Samaritan shows us what is meant by eternal life – the parable is not just a story of neighbourliness. Eternal life is exemplified in the way the Samaritan behaved, and it is something that's with us here and now. Eternal life is more than a vision of everlasting choirs in a heavenly future. When a scribe had asked Jesus how to inherit eternal life. Jesus told the parable and advised the scribe to "Go and do likewise." Eternal life is likely to be spread around and inherited more by example and imitation, than by words and preaching. In our churches, do we have too many arguing "scribes" and not enough caring welfare workers?
Luke 10: 25-37
