The story of the ten lepers is a testimony to the healing power of Jesus Christ. But it’s more than that. It’s a witness of gratitude from a condemned man who was brought from death to life.
This is what sets the story of the ten lepers apart from all the other healing stories of the New Testament, for of all those Jesus healed and raised from the dead, only this poor leper came back to say thank you. In this way, he serves as a paradigm for how we ought to live each day in gratitude for God’s redeeming love.
The leper was an outsider, someone whom society had made an outcast, yet he had the courage to make himself seen and go and say thankyou.
We are not outcasts and yet perhaps we forget to say thankyou. We can be quick to point out a fault, but how often do we go and thank someone for what they have done?
