"As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the minifold grace of God." 1 Peter 4:10
One of the best known and beloved parables in a Bible brimming with divine wisdom is told in response to the simple question -- “Who is my neighbor?” (Luke 10:29). Jesus, discerning the self-interest in the question, doesn’t directly answer it but instead recounts the actions of one man in helping a stranger in need. The parable ends with Jesus proclaiming that a neighbor is one who shows mercy to those in need. In this way the story of the Good Samaritan instead shifts our attention to the more vital question of, “Are YOU a neighbor?”
James the brother of Jesus echoes the actions of faith when he tells us, “If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace, be warmed and filled’, without giving them things needed for the body, what good is that?” (James 2:15-16). Jesus himself reminds us that we will be judged on whether we fed the hungry, welcomed the stranger, clothed the naked, and visited the sick and imprisoned (Matthew 25).
In obedience to this clear Word of faith in action, it is our honor and privilege to declare that the Good Samaritan Health & Wellness Center is a local ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ that will serve our neighbors in need by …
- identifying our working uninsured neighbors in northwestern Tennessee and western Kentucky
- helping those who cannot help themselves by providing preventive health screening, wellness education, and referrals;
- providing a place where those with the heart of a Good Samaritan can employ their skills and talents in faithful service to God and neighbor.
We undertake this ministry in prayerful hope and trusting faith, claiming the Lord’s own promise to those who by their actions love God and their neighbor as themselves: “Do this and you will live.”
