Go and do Likewise

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God's desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, "Go and do likewise."

Franklin Graham, the son of evangelist Billy Graham founded Samaritan’s Purse more than 35 years ago. They have done their utmost to follow Christ's command by going to the aid of the world's poor, sick, and suffering. The organization, located in Boon, North Carolina reaches hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ; earning them the right to preach the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Particularly noted, they have an emergency relief program that provides desperately needed assistance to children and other victims of natural disaster, war, disease, and famine. They also offer food, water, and temporary shelter, meeting critical needs and giving people a chance to rebuild their lives.

People often ask Mr. Graham, "Why did you come?" The answer is always the same: "We have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ." Their ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, "For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus' sake" (2 Corinthians 4:5).
