At A Distance
At A Distance
At a distance they stood
and asked Jesus if he would
heal them of their disease.
At a distance ,they called Master
pleading for mercy
and as they walked
while they talked...
the ten lepers were healed.
At a distance nine remained
while one returned
to the feet of Christ
This one gave thanks...
One healed soul
and Jesus said unto him,
" Arise, go thy way:
Hath made thee whole."
Based on Luke 17:11-19
Only one out of ten returned to give thanks and praise --after asking Jesus to heal them of disease.
Physical healings are a gift...whenever we receive a gift we should always be moved from the heart to give thanks .
And the gift of salvation is eternal \0/\0/ . It is the very reason we can continually and prayerfully always give thanks for the blessed victory we have in Christ Jesus.
I'd rather be sick and have a personal ongoing relationship with my Saviour every moment granted unto me - -
than live a 100 years of perfect health ---but not knowing Christ . I view the 100 years as wasted if it is absent knowing the sacred love of God.
Life has trials . I accept every trial . I know the trials and storms come to help my faith . And they do.
Storms come and go--- but the Son always shines.
I love Jesus and nothing can ever change that. I love witnessng for Him and sharing Him with others. God has given me many wonderful opportunities over the years for this to happen.
I look forward to many more.
God bless and have a great day in Him.

You surely speak truth, Julie! For someone who is given a gift, but that gift is not received with appreciation or thanksgiving is to miss the blessing. It goes both ways, though, if the gift is given out of some sort of perceived obligation instead of out of the sheer joy of love and giving - then that, too, is to miss the blessing. With Christ we absolutely know that His gift of salvation is born of His eternal love for us and His utter joy in giving to us that which makes us whole. Prayers for all to see His gift for what it is - LIFE; for any day without Him is just another day of Death. Well that was a long-winded way of saying you hit the nail on the head! (((HUGS))) and blessings!
