Fervent Prayer, Missionary Evangelism

ONLY ONE CAME BACK TO SAY THANKS

When one of them saw that he was healed, he came back. He praised God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him. – Luke 17:15 In given the rule of manners we were taught to say two
very important words. “Please and Thanks”. It was a way of showing gratitude and appreciation as well as respect. When you were reminded to say Thank you it was a way that your parent taught you to show thankfulness. Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem. He traveled along
the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he was going into a village, ten men met him. They had a skin disease. They were standing close by. And they called
out in a loud voice, “Jesus! Master! Have pity on us!”Jesus saw them and said, “Go. Show yourselves to the priests.” While they were on the way, they were healed. – Luke 17:11-14 When one of them saw that he was healed, he came
back. He praised God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him. The man was a Samaritan.When Jesus saw the Samaritan, He
immediately wondered about the other nine men who had also been healed.Jesus asked, “Weren’t all ten healed? Where are the other nine? Didn’t anyone else return and give praise to God except this
outsider?”Then Jesus said to him, “Get up and go. Your faith has healed you.” Many of us, God have answered, and without a doubt we know that we have been healed undeserving. Jesus was
the one traveling. So he came their way. If Jesus had not come their way they would not have sought him out. We can look at it this way, that they were in Samaria a place of sin. Sin had affected them. They had Leprosy and had
become an outcast. It was ten of them. They saw Jesus and cried out… Have Pity. Yes there is some situations that will make you cry out. Jesus gave them instruction.
He commanded them to go show themselves to the Priest. On their way they were healed. Yes your obedience will cause a miraculous move of GOD. But look
what happened next. One noticed that he was healed and I am sure he alerted the others who checked themselves. But he was the one paying attention he was the one grateful. It was that Leper that came back to say thanks. God is looking for your gratitude in your attitude. Why?
Because he asked the one that said thanks, wasn’t it ten of you and only you came back. What have God done for you lately? When was the last time you Just out of a pure place just spent time being the one to come back and say thanks. GOD IS LOOKING FOR
YOU. HE WANTS TO HEAL… HE WANTS TO DELIVER.. HE WANTS TO SET FREE. BUT HE ALSO WANT TO SEE YOUR GRATITUDE. Maybe you want to know how. To begin with, Praise GOD
like YOU know it was him that has done such a great act of kindness. Be committed to this change. This is through fellowship. a consistent presence in a church, that you know has truth. Live a life centered on Gods will, purpose
and plan. STAY FOCUSED SOMETHING GOOD IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN TO YOU!!!
