Luk 17:11 At that time, on the way to Jerusalem, Jesus was passing by between Samaria and Galilee.
Luk 17:12 As he was entering a village, ten men with leprosy met him. They stood at a distance,
Luk 17:13 raised their voices and cried, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”
Luk 17:14 When he saw them he said, “Go and present yourselves to the priests.” And as they went along, they were being purified.
Luk 17:15 Then one of them, when he saw he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice.
Luk 17:16 He fell with his face to the ground at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. (He happened to be a Samaritan.)
Luk 17:17 Then Jesus said, “Were not ten purified? Where are the other nine?
Luk 17:18 Was no one discovered to have turned back and give praise to God except this foreigner?”
Luk 17:19 Then he said to the man, “Get up and go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
gratitude is faith
In a world where things get hectic and busy, faith manifests itself by time spent expressing gratitude. Coming back to Jesus, the author of your life’s blessings, and giving him thanks. That is a way of showing your faith in him.
LORD, thank you for all those blessings that have come our way. We know their source.
