We are reminded in this story that what Jesus has done in our lives should never be forgotten. Past, present and future.
11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.
- ITS COMMON TO SEE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO HAS THE SAME OUTLOOK AND THE SAME ATTITUDE OF A CONDITION HUDDLED TOGETHER.
- Those who are not thankful are those who conditions never change
SOMETIMES WE ARE NOT PRESENTED WITH A QUESTION FROM GOD BUT AN ACTION AND THAT ACTION IS THANKFULNESS, PRAISE AND HONOR!
“Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. “
There’s something powerful about taking a step of action.
I believe sometimes God does this to show our Re Action.
Remember that action portrays character.
We may say we can believe God in a certain area, but are we acting in faith?
15 And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice;
16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”
THE LEPERS WERE WANTING HEALING BUT ONLY ONE CAME BACK WITH A HEART OF PRAISE!
THE BEGINNING OF REBELLION IS A THANKLESS HEART.
I NEVER WANT TO ARRIVE AT A PLACE TO WHERE IM NOT GRATEFUL FOR WHAT HE HAS GIVEN ME.
I NEVER WANT TO THINK THAT I CAN MAKE IT ON MY OWN
Take a minute and reflect on what the Lord has done, remember when we weren’t faithful, He was faithful!
Remember that pit that He got you out of!
Remember the sin that He freed you from!
