Seeing What Jesus Saw: Lepers
Luke 17:11-19

A heartfelt expression of gratitude to God is fitting for those who been the recipient of his mercy and kindness. In the interaction between Jesus and ten lepers, we discover 2 aspects of gratitude which we should take to heart during this season of the year.
I. Our Reason for Gratitude: Jesus ‘Sees’ our Needs.
II. Our Response of Gratitude: We ‘See’ Jesus’ Provision.
Conclusion: Jesus saw…

1. …hurting people whose plight Touched his heart and Moved him to action.

2. …a single person who lost no time in Expressing his Praise to the One from whom all blessings flow.
How many ‘temporal’ mercies have we experienced through our whole lives! What continuance of health, or deliverance from sickness! What freedom from want, or relief in the midst of it! What comfort in the fellowship of our friends and relatives! How many ‘spiritual’ mercies too have we received from God! What provision has been made for the healing of our souls! The Son of God himself has suffered, that he might ‘heal us by his stripes’ and offers us pardon and salvation have been proclaimed to us in his name; Yea, we have been promised a deliverance from the leprosy of sin, and have been entreated to become children and heirs of God. Are not these mercies which demand our gratitude? (Charles Simeon)
