Luke 17:11-19 Great-fullness 

  On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” Then he said to him, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.” [NRSV]

I am grateful for Rev Michael Morton preach while I am away this Sunday. He will be leading the congregation in World Communion. 

My refe toon on this weeks text

  1. Often healing and other prayers are co firmed and we fail to show our gratefulness to God. 
  2. Many peopled bless but few claim the connection with God, in fact many work to disconnect 
  3. Jesus is not in it for the praise and glory. Jesus gives himself to all. Only a fraction return the appreciation. 
  4. The 9 have healing. The tenth has healing and connects the dots of faith. 
  5. God blesses the grateful and the ungrateful. Become one who grows in faith and relationship through Gods faithfulness and grace.
