Luke 17:11-19 NIV
11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. 17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”
What do we learn from the 10?
There is only one place to find help (vs.13).
The best response to What Jesus instructs us to do is obedience (vs.14).
We often get wrapped up in circumstances and miss the bigger picture (vs.17).
What do we learn from Jesus?
Jesus deals with us mercifully (vs.13).
Jesus calls us to be in the world, but not of the world (vs.14).
Jesus wants us to be in a proper relationship with the Father (vs.17).
Jesus offers us a healing that is deeper than the temporary (vs.19).
Don’t let your current circumstances keep you from seeing and giving thanks for the Grace, Mercy, Forgiveness, and Love of the Father given to us through Jesus Christ.
This is the last lesson of this series and it has been so amazing to stop and think about the miracles Jesus performed, and what we can learn about them. I think one of the cool things about our Savior is that He does everything with purpose. Even now there is purpose for His miracles and things we can learn. Today we talked about the healing of the 10 lepers. Leprosy is a disease that you can see on your skin. So everyone around them clearly knew these men were sick, and in this time they would make these people live outside of town by themselves. But Jesus sees the lepers and offers them healing, a new way to live. There is so much we can learn from this miracle, but here’s what I want you to focus on today: don’t get wrapped up in your current circumstances and miss the big picture. Nine of these men were so worried about they’re healing, they missed that Jesus was offering them so much more! Only one came back, thanked Jesus, and fully got what Jesus did. So often we get caught up in what is happening now that we miss what Jesus is doing around us or through us. Today, despite our current circumstances, look for ways Jesus is still working on miracles around you! He is the God of miracles after all!
One leper came back and gave praises and thanks to Jesus, may we be like that one leper! Today thank God through worship, through reading Scripture, through quiet time, through a drawing, whatever you choose. Just do something to thank God for something specific He has done for you. Try to move beyond sending Jesus on the Cross. Think of something unique that you can speak about with someone else.
- One thing we learned is there is only One true place to find help. How has this been true in your life?
- Jesus goes against what most people would do by going to the ten lepers. How can we follow His example in our life?
- How can we give thanks to God daily for what He has done in our lives?
Welcome to Real Talk!
Investing in the lives of our students through Real Conversations, with Real People, about Real Hard Questions of Faith.
These past few weeks, we have been trying out something new downstairs on Sunday Mornings. Real Talk was originally the brainchild of Jake Brown, the youth minister at Discovery Christian Church, designed with the hopes of encouraging students to lean into one another as they wrestle through questions about the text, that they may have otherwise just gone to a leader for an answer before looking for themselves. We believe that growth happens when we seek out Christ for ourselves, both individually and in community. Thus, it is the hope of us, here at PTC3, that Real Talk would provide students with an opportunity to take their faith into their own hands, as they invest in their relationship with Jesus, and walk alongside their peers through these questions and conversations.
In light of our temporary shift to online platforms, we are still looking to provide students with the opportunity to dive into the text and explore the faith through these conversations, but with their families now! We encourage each of our students to bring their families into these discussions and wrestle through the questions together, hopefully revealing areas of strength, hope, and growth for the family, as well as the individual. So, join us this week as we dive into Luke 17:11-19 and explore Jesus and His miracles.
What stands out about this passage to you?
The Samaritan lepers knew who Jesus was because those that had been affected by Jesus went and spread the word all over the land. How have you been an agent of encouragement by the way you spread Jesus’ message of hope to all those you come into contact with?
For Samaritans, for a Jew to help them would be highly unusual, yet this is the second time Jesus is recorded as having done so! How has Jesus moved in unusual or surprising ways in your life recently?
Obedience brought about healing and blessing. How has following Jesus brought you peace, healing, and/or blessing?
One of the lepers turned back to praise Jesus, not because he was giving up on doing what Jesus had told him to do, but because he understood that the focus was never on the healing but on God’s goodness. How have you been living a life on mission? And how have you made sure to keep the focus on Jesus?
Our response to what Jesus has done in our lives is what differentiates us from being a spectator and a follower. How has your response to the way God has been at work in your life been one of a follower and not just a spectator?
Our faith and thanksgiving are intimately tied together. How have you been giving thanks to God as He moves in your life? Where are you going above and beyond? How might you grow in your thanksgiving?
There was an unspoken expectation for those that were healed to acknowledge Jesus and the healing, but instead they continued ahead forgetting the one that healed them. In what ways can our pursuit of ministry actually hinder us from living a life of faith? How might we prevent that from happening?
Though Jesus was the One with the power to heal the lepers, ultimately it was the faith of the one leper that made him whole. Having our needs provided for is one thing, but to be made complete is another. How has following Christ served to make you “well?”
