Jesus Heals Ten Men With Leprosy

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[a] 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.”

The lepers cried out in desperation not pretending or merely with their lips

Matthew 15:7-9 “‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.'”

When we come to the Lord come with the heart with a loud shout, we should also search our lives and and bring our hearts and not just our lips.

Proverbs 3:9-10 Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.

Honour the Lord with your wealth
We need to give as a sign of honour. Honour doesn’t come from doing but it is the posture of the heart.

Being thankful more often than not is not from a position of comfort. When you thank God you activate your miracle. We have lost so much time and the year is close to the end let us not procrastinate but come to God with thankfulness. Thanking God is the heart of what you do it is what you say. You don’t have to wait for something to happen. Being thankful more often than not is not from a position of comfort. When you thank God you activate your miracle. We have lost so much time and the year is close to the end let us not procrastinate but come to God with thankfulness.

Philippians 4:6, Luke 17:11, Proverbs 3:9-10
