“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. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.   And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side.  But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him,  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.  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.  Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.”
Luke 10:30-37 KJV

Someone said “Have you noticed all the bruises on her arms”?  The person he was talking to replied “Yes, but she has to ask for help before I help her because otherwise I don’t want to get involved”.  Sometimes people can’t ask for help because they are shy or afraid to ask for help.  Jesus said we are to help.

Jesus gets involved in our lives and He helps us in every way.  All we have to do is ask Him for help and then get out of the way and let Him help us.  Are you willing to get out of your comfort zone and get involved?  If Jesus hadn’t got involved and died for us we would be on our way to hell.  Open your heart and help.
