We are called to be like Jesus.

Micah 6:6-8

“With what shall I come before the LORD, and bow myself before God on high?

Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old?

Will the LORD be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousands of rivers of oil?

Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?” He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Do Justice Love Kindness

Walk Humbly with your God

Hosea 6:6

“I want you to show love Not offer sacrifices

I want you to know me

More than I want burnt offerings” Knowing God


“And as Jesus reclined at table in the house, behold, many tax collectors and sinners  came and werereclining with Jesus and his disciples. And when the Pharisees saw this, they said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”  But when he heard it, he said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but  those who are sick. Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy, andnot sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

Matthew 12:7

“And if you had known what this means, I desire mercy, and not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the guiltless.”

Mark 12:28-34

“One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He  realized that Jesushad answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which  is the most important?”

Jesus replied, “The most important commandment is this: ‘Listen, O Israel! The Lord our God is the one and only Lord. And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart,  all your soul, all your mind, and allyour strength.’ The second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ No other commandment is greater than these.”

The teacher of religious law replied, “Well said, Teacher. You have spoken the truth by  saying that there is only one God and no other. And I know it is important to love him  with all my heart and all myunderstanding and all my strength, and to love my neighbor  as myself. This is more important than to offer all of the burnt offerings and sacrifices  required in the law.”

Realizing how much the man understood, Jesus said to him, “You are not far from the  Kingdom of God.”And after that, no one dared to ask him any more questions.”

Luke 10:30-37

“Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling from Jerusalem down to  Jericho, and he wasattacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up,  and left him half dead beside the road.

“By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to  the other side of the road and passed him by. A Temple assistant walked over and  looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side.

“Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt  compassion for him. Goingover to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil  and wine and bandaged them. Then he putthe man on his own donkey and took him to  an inn, where he took care of him. The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver  coins, telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the  next time I’m here.’

“Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked  by bandits?” Jesus asked.

The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.” Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”

Who is your Samaritan?

John 4:3-10

“So he left Judea and returned to Galilee.

He had to go through Samaria on the way. Eventually he came to the Samaritan village  of Sychar, near the field that Jacob gave to his son Joseph. Jacob’s well was there; and  Jesus, tired from the long walk, sat wearily beside the well about noontime. Soon a  Samaritan woman came to draw water, and Jesus said to her, “Please give me a drink.” He was alone at the time because his disciples had gone into the village to buy some food.

The woman was surprised, for Jews refuse to have anything to do with Samaritans. She said to Jesus, “You are a Jew, and I am a Samaritan woman. Why are you asking me  for a drink?”

Jesus replied, “If you only knew the gift God has for you and who you are speaking to,  you would ask me, and I would give you living water.”

Just Do It Just Love

Just live like Jesus
