Serving Jesus in Our Community

Bible Notes

Luke 17:11-16 (30.06.21)

Luke 17:11-16
11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy[b] 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.

This is the perfect response, a perfect 3 out of 3! The man recognises what has happened, he recognises who has done it, and he goes and expresses his gratitude – and all this despite the fact that he was a Samaritan, not one of God’s people. It is all to easy to just complete the first step, or sometimes the first two.

What has Jesus done for you? Take some time in prayer to complete all three stages, and thank Jesus for his loving work on your behalf.
