Lessons From A Leper
Learning should be a lifelong pursuit….
Lessons can also come from the most unlikeliest of places and people.
“Least of These”…
In our text we look at how these lepers give us a lesson for life…
First of all we see that Jesus on his way to Jerusalem decides to go through Samaria and Galilee…his decision to intentionally go through a place where most people had forsaken and despised shows us the nature of God….to go where others won’t and to interact with those whom are looked down upon.
The First lesson we learn from the lepers
They called out to Jesus
Recognize the Redeemer
Regardless of how society viewed them or their ranking in society…when they saw Jesus they called out to him. There are a lot of so called regular, smart, cute, intelligent people who are missing Jesus daily.
Faithful to Follow Through
Jesus tells them to show themselves to the priest…sometimes our lack of follow through keeps us from our blessings. We want God to show up the way we want and bless us the way we want and we miss doing the ONE thing he ask us to do.
Attitude of Gratitude that Glorifies God
All it took was one….of the 10 lepers only one came back to give thanks to God. He saw his healing but instead of going forward he went back….he gave loud thanks as loud as his plea for help!
