Luke 17:11-19
11As Jesus continued on toward Jerusalem, he reached the border between Galilee and Samaria. 12As he entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance, 13crying out, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
14He looked at them and said, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed of their leprosy.
15One of them, when he saw that he was healed, came back to Jesus, shouting, “Praise God!” 16He fell to the ground at Jesus’ feet, thanking him for what he had done. This man was a Samaritan.
17Jesus asked, “Didn’t I heal ten men? Where are the other nine? 18Has no one returned to give glory to God except this foreigner?” 19And Jesus said to the man, “Stand up and go. Your faith has healed you.”

路加福音 17:11-19
11耶穌往耶路撒冷去,經過撒瑪利亞和加利利的邊境。12他走進一個村莊,有十個痲風病人迎面而來,遠遠地站著,13大聲說:“主耶穌啊,可憐我們吧!”14他看見了,就對他們說:“你們去給祭司檢查吧。”他們去的時候就潔淨了。15內中有一個人見自己已經好了,就回來大聲頌讚 神,16在耶穌腳前把臉伏在地上感謝他。他是一個撒瑪利亞人。17耶穌說:“潔淨了的不是有十個人嗎?那九個在哪裡?18除了這外族人,再沒有一個回來頌讚 神嗎?”19耶穌就對他說:“起來,走吧,你的信使你痊愈了。”

Common theme with this passage. Being thankful…. God desires more for us….

Point #1: Jesus shows no favoritism.
Jews and Samaritans don’t connect, yet their leprosy removed social norms.

Point #2: There leprosy was their biggest gift.
Thier leprosy place them in front of Jesus.

Point #3: Do we miss the healer, looking for the healing?
All 10 received healing that day, 1 received more. One found the healer.

Conclusion:
Interesting to note that the next passage is Jesus teaching that the kingdom was not just physical but also spiritual to the pharisees.

Are we able to recognize our brokeness and bring it to Jesus? Do we miss the healer, while only looking for healing?
