From the Pastor's Desk
In Luke 17 There is a story of healing recorded where Jesus healed ten lepers. As the event goes the lepers came to Jesus for healing and He instructed then to go and show themselves to the High Priest and as they went, it is recorded that they were all healed. One of the lepers who was a Samaritan immediately returned to worship Jesus as his Lord. Notice the response this brought from our Lord:
17 So Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But where are the nine? 18 Were there not any found who returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19 And He said to him, “Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you whole.”
They were all healed but only one was made completely whole. It was the one who returned to worship Jesus as his Lord. For then it was evident that this man wanted Jesus as Lord, instead of just what He could do for him.
