The Tenth Leper (Luke 17:11-19)Gary Kirst, November 23, 2014
Part of the Thanksgiving series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
If we were to count our complaints versus our blessings, which would come out on top? Has the breathtaking grace of God lost its hold on our heart? Did his grace ever capture our heart in the first place? We have much to learn from the tenth leper.

11And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
