In this passage of God’s Word, we see Jesus continuing His journey towards Jerusalem. As He does, He encounters 10 lepers. He instructs them to show themselves to the priests, and as they did, they are all healed. Afterwards, only one comes back to thank Jesus. This story shows us that we should:
1. Realize, God notices and hears us
Luke 17:11-14, 1 Pet. 3:12, 1 John 5:13-15, Heb. 4:16, Ps. 18:6
2. Obey when God instructs
Luke 17:14, 6:46, John 14:15-24, 1 Sam. 15:22, James 1:22, 2 Kings 5:1-14
3. Give thanks to God
Luke 17:15-19, 1 Thess. 5:18, Col. 3:17, Ps. 92:1, 106:1, 107:1, Eph. 5:20
4. Realize that your relationship with God is more important than anything else
Luke 17:19, Heb. 11:6, John 17:3, Rom. 5:1-2
Reflection Questions

1. After reading and hearing about this encounter that Jesus had with these 10 lepers, what stands out to you the most? Why?
2. How do you think your relationship with God would change if you were better about giving Him thanks? How can you show more gratitude to God?
3. What would it look like for you better prioritize your relationship with the Lord?

We believe that our faith grows best when we surround ourselves with other believers. That’s why we encourage everyone to be a part of one of our groups, where we can intentionally share our lives with one another. There is a Sunday School group meeting on Sunday mornings before Service at 9:30. Our small groups are also in the process of starting for the fall. If you would like to be a part of one, please reach out to Pastor Josh.
