Nine Lepers Went to Church

Ten lepers were healed. Nine went to church. One went to Jesus!

 
I preached on Jesus and the ten lepers this past Sunday from Luke 17:11-19. It was my first time preaching on the passage and I really enjoyed it.

One thing that stuck out to me was at the beginning of the passage all ten lepers called out to Jesus in a loud voice for healing. And then later on, the one leper who returned came back praising God in a loud voice. It raises a good question. Do we praise God as loudly and as passionately when he answers our prayers as we do when we call out to him for help?

Anyways, if you would like to read the whole message, you can find the transcript here: Give Thanks! (Jesus and the Ten Lepers) – Luke 17:11-19 Blessings to you, and I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
