And so this various special edition of the Jericho good Samaritan show is live in you out there have the real story.

So on today's show she's helping out with the compassionate end. But she's also can be shared some of the stories of the good Samaritans that I have found through my searching all week of stories about good Samaritans in the first one comes from a gentleman who called himself. I think as he was a fireman fuel hose are welcome. Karen all applicant shall, when an American way to work.
I thought my white car and I get the route 30° below the relative morning and I laughed at and dark. I some men at the driver window like a woman your neck terrified me help holding her car a quick thinker alternator had quit it if I walked that out. So to calm her down.
I held up my told her I could help her. He had a baby and McCarthy and both of them were so cold I got in my truck to warm up and tried my account that I would get back so the solution why I drove her back about 10 miles to her house. She told me that I had passed by and no one even flowed down here in Alaska life for its life to help them make something you do, no matter what we do not have any requirement for concealed weapons that we assume everyone is packing 40 for a special my pocket just in case the standard we live by, prepare for the word and call for the back. It will even out somewhere in the middle.
I'm glad I got I still have my humanity and will help my fellow Alaskan, I will not be a victim, but I will not be the human person that drive by a young family freezing, well, so there's one that turned out well, but you may have one that didn't turn out well.
Your listening right now you got a story to tell. We would love to hear it 866-348-7884 is a number to call in and share your story.
Whether that somebody stop for you or whether you stop for somebody or maybe something that went wrong. Maybe you're familiar with something we or maybe got a strong opinion on the subject.
We'd love to hear from you. 866-348-7884 is a number to call in and share and certainly there are some safety concerns and we talked about that kind of thing. In fact, we have some police tips we want to share for you during the show today but we also have our very own Christian insurance guy Bill Mixon with us here today because there's other stuff to think about.
Good morning all, thank you for tuning in. I remember one day I put a gentleman in my car and I was going to go help him as one in the church food pantry enclosing closet and I just was sure that God wanted me to help this guy and it didn't turn out the way I thought it was going to win. Talk about that a little bit and so there there's also two sides to the story and your side is the one I'm really interested in here and so give us a call were anxious to hear from you. 866-34-TRUTH 87884 is a number to call you and share and then coming up been shown our appraisal by the real black book. That's where we search the Bible for hidden treasure. Cry out for discernment, lift up your voice for understanding. I know you may be thinking Rob is going to be teaching on the good Samaritan story. Well, I think Bob Robie actually sings that song Jericho Road he preaches about a good sermon on that subject. As I've heard from a play that song throughout the show today which by the way, if you go to Christian card. I.com you can see him singing that whole song and several of the stories of of different folks that stopped what happened, some good some horrible, some wonderful there all their Christian card.
I.com as well as those police tips on talking about and things to be thinking about is one of the situations may arise in your life. But when I'm at teatime I praise about the real black book got had a little different lesson plan for me every week of euros if he has something for you and and this week I was thinking through some of Jesus's miracles and study and some of Jesus's miracles. And interestingly, Jesus performed many many many here miracles of healing and restoration but to my knowledge, he only performed one miracle of destruction and share what that has to do with the good Samaritan that one miracle of destruction. And that's coming up in the shown our appraisal by the real black book.
If you just turn and then yes you list the Christian card I show on Robbie Gilmore 35 years in the retail automobile business, but more importantly your brother in Christ Christian card I show hopefully change the way people look at their cars and need to be paid for no debt watching people going to crazy amounts of debt is a heartbreaker for the car business. So that's one of the big reasons we started this show and one of the waste make sure you don't go on the card it is to take good care of your car in that way it will last as long as you do like my 1995 Dodge Dakota old red 350,000 miles on it. If you take care of your car last as long as you do. And cars need to be safe and driven safely. So we talk about that today. What is this safe way to handle the good Samaritan situation and in the course.
We have also to technology today but the good Samaritan didn't have so were going to talk about how you might use that to be safe because it is not just eat your own safety. At times, is working to find out from another lobby story. Sometimes you get people in the car with you. You gotta worry about their safety and and we often talk.
Also, the Christian card. I show about speeding, not speeding. If you truly following Jesus. In other words, if he's the car ahead of you. He would not be going above the speed limit and I estimate that Americans waste 200 million gallons of gas a week on speeding so I say that every week to point out to everyone is what we don't have a gas shortage in this country we have a sin overabundance of people speeding if we would slow down, we would have no gas shortage so as not all talk about today we are talking about the good Samaritan. When did you stop or when did somebody stop for you.

Forgiveness is about power but whose power you've heard it said that when you refuse to forgive someone you're letting that person control you your whole mindset becomes reactionary. One of letting your emotions and actions controlled by the person. There is another important out. In the parable of Jesus healing the paralytic. Jesus said that only God had the power to forgive sins, which means any time. We offer forgiveness. We are doing only for the power of Christ such forgive does not just remove control of your life and the one who sinned against you.

It's not always just exactly hamburgers and roses. Well, I do want to say that I'm not advocating, never stopping my family was on the mud by girls and mother-in-law were heading to the beach one time and got stopped and rocking him because the engine transmission dropped out and some wonderful people took care of them and I hope that happens for lots of other people in need, but there was an occasion when I let this gentleman in my car and I was going to go assist him. I had bumped into them at the YWCA a few weeks earlier, and because I was running the soup kitchen.
The clothing closet in the food pantry at church.
I had a particularly tender heart and was listening to this gentleman talk to me and I was sure he was a brother. He had all the right things to say and he needed $20 to help him pay his room and board, so I didn't want to hand in the cash and I decided to go take. He defined his landlord to give them the $20 and I bet we spent two hours because this God knew every piece of property that his landlord and will the next time I saw him he was on his way to us on the way to the habitat to do a little bit of construction and I had told him where I was going to be. And lo and behold there he was side taken him to get some clothes and some stuff that of the food pantry and then the third time I bump into him.
He's got a check and he wants help cashing this check will the name on the check in the name he was using that day were not the same size just a little bit concerned that something was not quite right side had them in my car and we drove the one of the properties we are his landlord supposedly the house and these folks came out and I said, pardon me, can you tell me the name of the landlord. Once again the name that had been given to me in the name that was presented then were not the say acid.
This just isn't right, and I started crying now wish I had it been a strong enough Christian to have prayed in the beginning but at that point I started playing and I realized this guy was not what he claimed to be.
And I gotta say this. The only time in my life where I bumped into something that I would say wisdom on and there was a change in this person. There was a change in the atmosphere in the car and his voice changed and he told me that I was going to take care of this problem for him. I started the car and I hit it with the police station. I said well he won't know where I'm going and the smartest thing I can do is either bump into a policeman or pull into the parking lot at the police station and he grabbed the stick shift and he said if you go any farther down this road rip your transmission and I wish I really wish after he got out of the car for years and years after that.
I wondered if I had been smart enough that in the faith enough to looked over at him and sit in the name of Jesus I cast the spirits out of you, but about all I could do was to slam on the brakes and say get out of my car, get out of my car to my point. Do you we and he got out he got. I hear lucky man on a lucky man.

I get like at a different kind of busy real busy road before Lady Carl Stoll Decatur, usually with getting towed might indicate that you know it.
It sounds simple Rita.
But it's huge for that lady who needed that toe that day its phenomenon, meant to tell you a similar story that happened to me you just got just recalled it in my mind. Here I am. I'm a Christian car guy, but sometimes things happen to me to my daughter called me panicked because she had locked my granddaughter in the car in. It was a day what was about 100° down here in North Carolina and so and if she was about five or six blocks from me so I fly over there trying to figure out how to get in this car with my granddaughter and I'm trying all the normal tricks the Christian cart and nothings happening for me. Rita and this lady comes out and she did just what you did because I have AAA and I know with this kind of emergency.com right now and open that car and I was just humble that this lady you know I felt like man my granddaughters life is in danger here because I'm fixed to break out a window and if this if this if this AAA man didn't show up when he did which it didn't take into minutes. Rita but I know that that union will never know and tell heaven how that may have affected the lady in the car. I've been locked my car and I locked my car, my client would not like my dog.

The calling and share your story now if you got a Christian car guy.com billiard and see all the stories. Unfortunately, some of worked out very very badly. People got killed and so at the very bottom of my site. There's a policeman you have to go through that little newscast thing to see what the policeman actually says, but there are some tips from this policeman and it seemed to me that wow I haven't thought about how easy this might be for most of us, his biggest tip is to keep your cell phone charged at the charger is a good thing to have one of those inexpensive charges for you cell phone and if you have a cell phone and you see a situation you don't necessarily have to put yourself at risk. Your family at risk.
You can simply call 911 and say there is a stranded motorist right here. There is a situation right here. Now the police are equipped their train. They have all the stuff going on so that they can deal with that particular situation and so you know that's that's what the policeman's tip once, which I thought was an outstanding tip because like Bill situation. You don't want to get my car with some you don't want to fight find yourself in a situation where you get hurt if you read the story you can see there are situations where you can hurt.
There's other things for you to rely on the Holy Spirit. Wow.
I mean I was a church the other day and Christian cart.
This lady is obviously trying to start a karma hearing the same thing.
It took me two seconds to jump in and explain to her how her battery cables release and help her out. I didn't feel any no real worry that this lady, this was somehow to set up you you gotta let the Holy Spirit guide you handsomely things will I don't know my wife or my daughter alone to stop the car and rolled her window down and talk to somebody because somebody can reach EN entire advantage of the situation. After section I could talk about Jesus sent people out into most of what the disciples did they did in groups so be very hesitant to jump into situations without taking your safety in mind, and it's always good to pray first part of this is to turn it around and make sure you don't put yourself in these situations, make sure that you've got charge cell phone. Make sure you pray before your trip. Make sure that you've got the phone number for your AAA your your roadside assistance not only in your glovebox, but in your wallet and purse got Dave is in rock Hill South Carolina Dave here on the Christian car – a good morning morning when you got force people not to like a wooded area. I just picked up when I start talking to, but when I got to the next stop on the children not instead you want to get out right by myself and I just what it was buckled at that, toward the spirit of me and I didn't really know what it will about two or three months later I was in a… And he kept calling his name called the name, the name, then the doctor came out and got on the children and to come back and goes off got a guy couldn't tell it out thankful that I picked him up anyway and it gave me and assured that God is in every situation you know while waiting to know me and I continue to do it up in school maybe 25 or 30 years I picked up Van picked up Mexicans on the little between the lot bigger than California just everywhere and I picked up garden bottom home and they will need to go to a truck stop that given locale and shouted it out. I wake up in the morning. I got chills from that story how God is these pat me on the back and he said you know I've got this that and and therein lies the. The whole deal. When you hear Jericho Road. I got bit you hear that in that light, David, God bless you and appreciate you called insomuch. There's a lot to a David sin, but Karen I would love for you to read that other story that we had for Monk because I think that speaks to a lot of folks are feeling like man can I do this.
Can I not, could you read that story force can hear for like 90° when I walked into the daycare I realized that my life not get my dictation daycare if they could help security help in getting the guy off the property when I came out and the baby were walking down the route. I pulled over, picked them up and drove them to their house. I then went home and cried with my life when I made the dictation to stop and can there you have a situation that it would be the case for I know a lot of folks and I'm God bless my mean that that that this sounds like Dave out there that are courageous and feel like God is with them in this in their praying before and I'm praying after and their feeling right, but there's other folks like to the mom who just said you know she put her child at risk. You put yourself at risk. Give this man a ride. I think that clearly we have opportunities to do things but we also can use our cell phones we can use good common sense.
We want to make sure that the people get help and in the good Samaritan himself really bill you think about it.
He didn't stay with the guy he gave them to the innkeeper gave the innkeeper some money he made sure that things were good, but then he went on his way and and and so if we can somehow another make sure things are good and that that means calling the police or whatever and staying in the location out of harms way until somebody gets there for help. Maybe that's what that means. If you hear a voice inside saying be careful because you and if your prayer and you hear that voice that says be careful. You've got to hear on that side, especially when you've got other ways to deal with the situation in a safe reform. Well, it was my intention originally to have Teddy Burris is a friend of mine on the show today, but I do have Teddy story and it and it's one that that it's a little bit longer but I would love for us to share that particular story.

That's where we search the Bible for hidden treasure crowd for discernment, lift up our voice for understanding, and yes it might be easy for me to teach on the good Samaritan, but that song teaches really really well and you can hear more of it before the shows over. But the thing I want to talk about today. The lesson plan. Jesus had for me this week was to talk about the miracles of our Lord and quite often, the miracles of our Lord were healing and restoration in interestingly George MacDonald in his book miracles of the Lord points out that each one is a tiny glimpse of a huge miracle that the father doing in your life every day.
But Jesus kind of fast forwards it like turning the water into wine which I know Larry loves that one) meet the butt or he took bread and made it out of the you know. But if you think about the miracle of what really goes into bread for the week to go and all that stuff. That's a huge miracle and the father supplies that force every single day. Jesus just kind of fast forwarded things real quick but the one he only did one miracle destruction out.
Really, if you think about miracles that God allows to happen creates to happen. One of those is the miracle of death because death ends up being a great cleansing if you read Revelation, there's a lot of it goes on, but in this one particular situation. Jesus was on his way into Jerusalem if you might remember and he walked up very excited to this figtree and unfortunately there was all green and loss but not a single fig. Why, because this figtree had thought about nothing but itself. It used all its vapid use all its energy to make itself healthy, but it did not have anything to share because the Lord himself walked up want the fig.
Remember what the disciples said when they came back. The figtree had weathered in a picture of what happens to us if we don't give fruit right in the neat thing about the fruit that you give if you heard Dave's story here. You heard the stories of the people that we had today by their fruit.
There were seeds in that fruit for more fruit that's passed on to the next and the next and the next like the fig is supposed to be so AE you know what it kinda ends up that if that really if you don't share any fruit you kind already are dead and that's that Jesus just allow the tree to do what it already was it. It was essentially of no value if it didn't provide any fruit, and so we have to look at our own lives in her own opportunities) when somebody hands of their hand and says why what can we do here when we have those opportunities.
