Absorbing God’s Word
“Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” Luke 17: 17-18
Applying God’s Word
I am not without trials, aches, pains, bothersome situations or circumstances beyond my control. I know what it means to have been so contaminated with sin that my shame kept me from asking God’s forgiveness. Like the ten lepers, I would stand at a distance begging for mercy.
Each and every time I’ve come to Jesus, He has cleansed me of my short comings. Too often, I have taken for granted His love and mercy. I don’t any longer. I make sure I return to give Him praise and thanks.
Accounting of God’s Word
Will I be approaching this Thanksgiving and Christmas with an attitude of gratitude? Will I stand off at a distance begging for God’s mercy or come close to be cleansed?
