And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. Luke 17:11-18
This passage above is what the message was Sunday morning. "Where are the Thankful?" Let's remember to give God thanks for all he has done for us this Thanksgiving! If we dwell on the negative we forget to thank Him for all the positive! Don't be one of the nine! I was thinking about this after church and I thought how sad it was that only one out of nine men returned to give thanks to God for healing them, but then I thought about the world we live in today. I am sure it is less than one out of nine that give thanks to him for dying on the cross and paying our sin debt so we won't die and go to hell. Give thanks with a greatful heart, give thanks to the Holy One, give thanks because of Jesus Christ His Son, give thanks. Let the weak say I am strong, let the poor say I am rich, because of what the Lord has done for us, Give Thanks!
I love you all... hope you have a Blessed Thanksgiving!
