Come Back

Taking a good look at them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”

They went, and while still on their way, became clean. One of them, when he realized that he was healed, turned around and came back, shouting his gratitude, glorifying God. He kneeled at Jesus’ feet, so grateful. He couldn’t thank him enough—and he was a Samaritan. Luke 17:15-16 MSG

The story of the ten lepers who were healed by Jesus shows us how very little has changed since the time of their healing. Our world today is consumed with pride and entitlement. Seeing someone expressing gratitude is a rare occurrence. Only one of the healed men came back to thank Jesus for what He had done. Jesus asked the man, “Where are the other nine?” That same question is one that is still being asked today.

Expressing gratitude towards someone who has significantly impacted our lives seems to be difficult for many of us. In recovery, we must learn how to be the one who comes back to Jesus and gives thanks to Him for saving our lives, for giving us eternal hope. We are the outsiders who didn’t go along with the crowd. Gratitude sets us apart from everyone else, bringing us into humility, thanking Christ for everything He has done, and continues to do, for us.

We were all once lepers, and we are all still strangers in this world. Christ healed the ten lepers, sending them to see the priests to confirm they were healed. One returned and was not only healed, but he was also saved. The evidence of our salvation is our love and gratitude toward Christ. We aren’t saved because we are grateful, we are grateful because we are saved.

Today’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, may we always stay grateful for what Christ is doing in our lives. We are the one who returns to Christ to show our gratitude. Without Christ, we are lost. Help us to always keep focused on what Christ is doing in each of our lives. Amen.
