In Luke 17 there is an interesting story: It is the story of how Jesus healed 9 Lepers. Now Leprosy was a very harsh thing (no cure for it). So Many times people cry out for miracles and get them but they never return to Glorify God with their lives. Jesus already knew why they didn’t come back to praise Him.
He wanted US to notice this happens otherwise, this passage of scripture would not be here! and Guess what? His dismay over this did not stop him! What an Example!
What a Mentor he was! What a great High Priest! Father your Mercy endures forever. Let this story be an example and reminder to us, not to stop doing good things , even when only one out of 10 come back to praise you! We do it for that one! Amen! Praise Jesus! See the story below:
11 Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12 Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off. 13 And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16 and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.” (NKJV)
