01. What Love is Like

Bill Serjak

This is a message from pastor and teacher Bill Serjak.


Bill, your sermon, “What Love is Like,” is the deepest interpretation of the parable of the Good Samaritan that I have ever been privileged to hear. Because your comments on the need for Christians to accept the assistance of others strikes home with me, for I, like you, have had early experiences that inculcated in me such a strong drive for self-sufficiency that I came to feel that it was unworthy of me to ask God for anything for myself, because I knew that I did not deserve it. Thank you for illuminating the inclusion of the ‘man in the ditch’ as a very real part of Christ’s teaching in this stroy. You’ve increased what has been a growing conviction that I had a real need to recognize the need for help from others, but more than that, to be ready to ask my Father for help while recognizing that no matter how little I might deserve it, it is so much a part of surrendering oneself to Him. Thank you, Bill, on the somewhat gloomy Wednesday morning in Durham, NC, for speaking directly to me in this sermon, truly one of gold. If we have to wait until we deserve God’s love, we will wait for an eternity.
