Our Guiding Principles
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, with all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
As God unfolded His plan for Samaritan Health and Wellness Center, He guided me to 1 John 2:5-6 “But if anyone obeys his word, God’s love is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: Whoever claims to live in him must walk as Jesus did.”
Samaritan Health and Wellness Center is not a human endeavor. It is not about me or anyone else who serves…it is all about Jesus and the Church’s reclamation of HIS healing ministry. Human beings are incapable of healing anyone; it is only through the loving hands of our Savior that the body, mind, and spirit are repaired and made new.
As His Church, His disciples, we are commissioned to “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation” Mark 16:15. Many times this command from Christ is interpreted as a directive to leave our communities and venture to foreign countries to spread the love of Jesus. While this is a calling for many missionaries, God planted Samaritan in our own backyard as a ministry and mission to allow the love of Jesus to flow in practical ways.
Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan in the Gospel of Luke is the example He set for us as the foundation of Samaritan Health and Wellness Center. In the story, the religious leaders of the day walked right past a beaten, nearly dead man lying on the side of the road. A Samaritan man came along, and seeing the injured man, stopped and tended to his needs. He even took the man to an inn and paid for further care. A stranger allowing the love of Christ to flow through him to another man who was as good as dead…that is what Jesus tells us to do for each other. That is what Jesus does for each one of us.
As you marvel in the love of Christ and His sacrifice given freely to all, please pray that Samaritan Health and Wellness Center will continue to spread the Good News in practical ways. To God be all glory, honor, and praise!
