Who is My Neighbuor

For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”Love does no wrong to a neighbour; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. – Romans 13:i9-10 https://biblegatewray.com/passage?search=Rom.13.9 

Note. “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. or Jesus states, And a secound is like it: you shall your neighbour as yourself Matthew 22:39 Lastly Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 1 Corinthians 13:4   

In Luke 10: 27 A lawyer said to Jesus   “You shall 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 your neighbor as yourself.” Luke10:27 The lawyer asks Who is your neighbour? While he was trying trap  or test Jesus, however, he ask good question, who is your neighbour?

In Leviticus 19:18)    18 You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against the sons of one lecture your own people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord. 

 Gotta question wrote, Our neighbor is thus anyone in our proximity with whom we can share God’s love. We are called not only to love those who are similar to us or with whom we are comfortable, but all whom God places in  our path. In fact, Jesus said, “I tell you, love your enemies and pray fr those who persecute you.

Who is your neighbour ? The late Dr. Schaeffer in one of his lecture address who is  your neighbour is  the persons  you encounter everyday whether if it briefly or long period of time treat them with respect. Whether your  rich or the poor or the least or the greatest the noble or the ignoble the beautiful, or the ugly the good, or the bad, the the moral or the immoral the despise or the well bred or the genus or Orthe retard people these are your neighbour 

 For example the Jews despise the Samaritan. For instance  Jews treated the Samaritan like dogs and Samaritan felt same .  The Samaritan woman illustrates this point in John 4 ;9 “How is it that you, a Jew, ask for a drink from me, a woman of Samaritan?” For the   have no dealings with Samaritans. Or In John 4:2 the disciple marvelled that he was talking with a woman, who was Samaritan and immoral  in verse 26 Jesus revealed that He was the Messiah  It Good Samaritan who gave aide not the priest or the Levite

In this way, Jesus himself is the Good Samaritan.  Dr. Tim Kellor wrote, By depicting a Samaritan helping a Jew, Jesus could not have found a more forceful way to say that anyone at all in need – regardless of race, politics, class, and religion – is your neighbour. Not everyone is your brother or sister in faith, but everyone is your neighbour, and you must love your neighbour.”

We must say to ourselves something like this: ‘Well, when Jesus looked down from the cross, he didn’t think “I am giving myself to you because you are so attractive to me.” No, he was in agony, and he looked down at us – denying him, abandoning him, and betraying him – and in the greatest act of love in history, he STAYED. He said, “Father, forgive them, they don’t know what they are doing.” He loved us, not because we were lovely to him, but to make us lovely. That is why I am going to love my neighbour as myself

The Christian is freed from the bondage of sin; the penalty of sin; the guilt of sin; the dominion of sin; the power of sin. And finally, we are freed from the fear of death and hell—such things we are freed from. 

Jesus asks the lawyer  Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?” The lawyer said, “The one who showed him mercy.” And Jesus said to him, “You go, and do likewise.” Luke 10:36-37 

The question is do I love my neighbour unfortunately I miss the mark in this area I do love the my neighbours nor do love the Lord God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, As the declares, For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Romans 7:15,18-19 Furthermore he states, Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. Romans 7:2 Paul Tigchelaar
