VIII. MAIN BODY:

Luke 10:31 (Amplified Bible)

Now by coincidence a certain priest was going down along that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

Luke 10:31 (King James Version)

And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side.

A. By chance a priest came that way

"And by chance there came down a certain priest that way:"

Chance happens to all people, whether believer or unbeliever but we make use of that chance to let the LORD shine in our lives.

Ecclesiastes 9:11 (Amplified Bible)

I returned and saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift nor the battle to the strong, neither is bread to the wise nor riches to men of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.

2 Samuel 1:6 (Amplified Bible)

The young man said, By chance I happened to be on Mount Gilboa and I saw Saul leaning on his spear, and behold, the chariots and horsemen were close behind him.

We redeem that time or chance placed by GOD in that certain period of time to glorify GOD.

Ephesians 5:16 (Amplified Bible)

Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil.

Colossians 4:5 (Amplified Bible)

Behave yourselves wisely [living prudently and with discretion] in your relations with those of the outside world (the non-Christians), making the very most of the time and seizing (buying up) the opportunity.

Chance or "sugkuria" in Greek meaning: to light or happen, concurrence, accident.

Chance will happen to people but use it to bring glory to GOD, by sharing His WORD to the people. My heart's prayer is that GOD will never find me idling or wasting the time He has given me by not sharing His WORD everywhere and anytime He placed me into.

Priest or "hiereus" in Greek meaning: a priest. A priest is someone who represents anyone who serves GOD, who represents GOD here on earth. We know according to this parable, that not all priests desires GOD in their hearts. There are priests that disobeys GOD.

Priest is defined by Webster's dictionary as a man who officiates in sacred offices. In primitive ages, the fathers of families, princes and kings were priests. Thus Cain and Abel, Noah, Abraham, Melchizedek,Job, Isaac and Jacob offered their own sacrifices. In the days of Moses, the office of priest was restricted to the tribe of Levi, and the priesthood consisted of three orders, the high priest, the priests, and the Levites, and the office was made hereditary in the family of Aaron. In the modern church, a person who is set apart or consecrated to the ministry of the gospel; a man in orders or licensed to preach the gospel; a presbyter. In its most general sense, the word includes archbishops, bishops, patriarchs, and all subordinate orders of the clergy, duly approved and licensed according to the forms and rules of each respective denomination of christians; as all these orders "are ordained for men in things pertaining to God." But in Great Britain, the word is understood to denote the subordinate orders of the clergy, above a deacon and below a bishop. In the United States, the word denotes any licensed minister of the gospel.
