READ

Luke 17:11-17 NKJV

11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.

15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.

17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”

 

Thankfulness draws you closer to Jesus

 

MEDITATION

 

 

This is the familiar story of the healing of the 10 lepers. But let us not let “familiarity breed contempt”.
 

Here are 10 lepers who called out for mercy to Jesus for “mercy”.
 

Jesus’ response to them was, ”Go, show yourselves to the priests”.
 

And the miracle took place “as they went, they were cleansed”.
 

One of them, when he realised he was healed returned, “with a loud voice glorified God, and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks”.
 

And he was a Samaritan!
 

The scripture reminds us clearly in, Luke 7:47 “Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.”

The issue is not whether God will touch or heal us. The crux of the matter is how much we appreciate God, and that is proportionate to how much we have truly experienced God’s forgiveness in our lives.

Jesus gave the Samaritan man further understanding concerning why he was healed.
“Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.” 

In other words, it lies within us how and when we will experience His power.
