Healing not dependent on your walk – case of ten lepers

2/2016

You need a healing miracle from God.  But maybe you think you have to be deserving of the miracle.  Maybe you think it is conditional on your walk, your obedience, and whether you glorify God.  Remember God’s grace is undeserved and unmerited favor.  Look at the case of the ten lepers.  Ten went to Jesus for deliverance from leprosy. All ten received their miracle but only one came back to glorify God.  Jesus cleansed all ten because God is good not because man is good.
jesus heals ten lepers
Luke 17:11-18  Now it happened as He went to Jerusalem that He passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.  Then as He entered a certain village, there met Him ten men who were lepers, who stood afar off.  And they lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”  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.  And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice glorified God,  and fell down on his face at His feet, giving Him thanks. And he was a Samaritan.   So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well.”
