Summary: Our passage today helps challenge us to be people who recognize God’s hand at work in our lives and turn to him in praise and thanksgiving.
Key Scripture (Luke 17:11–19): 11
Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”
14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.
15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.
17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
What is leprosy?
Why did Jesus stop to engage these men?
Why did he tell them to go show themselves to the priests?
What did the healing look like?
Ten were healed, one came back.
What about us?
Conclusion: He heals them all and only one returns to give thanks. What a great challenge for us to be people who recognize God’s hand at work in our lives and turn to him to give him praise and thanksgiving.
