Many members in our Church are suffering aliments at the moment. It is difficult to cope with all the appointments and medications. Jesus does make it possible for us to experience healing but it doesn’t seem as quick or as painless as the healing of the 10 lepers in the passage from Luke 17. Never the less, which ever path to health that God allows for us, we must be thankful. However long and complicated our healing may seem at times we should remember to praise God for every bit of progress and for every blessing. Here is the account about the 10 lepers.
On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance
and lifted up their voices, 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 cleansed. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? Was no one found to return and give praiseto God except this foreigner?” And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.” Luke 17:11-19, ESV.
What an interesting story and truly amazing miracle. As you face each day be prayerful and thankful. Here are some words of challenge from Paul.
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for thisis the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
