More Than Words 2018: Gus Cabrera points to the Good Samaritan to ‘fix the broken’

More Than Words 2018 in Palmetto, Florida opened on Saturday with host and speaker Gus Cabrera energizing a hall of Christian teens and youth gathering for a day of praise, worship and incredible insight from various speakers.

Cabrera pulled from Luke 10, Jesus’s story of “The Good Samaritan” and “How the Broken Can Fix the Broken.”

“Knowledge is power ONLY if applied,” Cabrera explained, pointing out how the pious religious leaders in the parable are “caught up in religious activity, missing the connection” and purpose to reach humanity.

The story centers on a man robbed and beaten, bleeding in the street. A priest passed him, walking on the other side of the street. Then a second man, an assistant to the priest ignores the ailing victim before a Samaritan comes to his aid.

“He’s like the priest because that’s who he knows…that’s what he knows,” Cabrera explained, adding pointing out how you will “be like who you are running with.”

Cabrera hosted the event, the third annual More Than Words Conference, opening ahead of Levi Lusko and Jentezen Franklin.

On to the healing which comes from the Good Samaritan parable, Gus says that those “wounds do run deep” but the “deeper wounds…those deeper cuts, allows God to get deeper, go deeper inside for His healing.”

It was later in the day when Gus returned to the stage with his wife, Jessica, to announce that the event would be expanding in 2019 to two days and that tickets would be made available.
