Giving Thanks, Part 2 (Luke 17:11-19)Pastor Jared Shumate, November 18, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
This morning we took a look at the ten lepers who were healed by Jesus. We saw how we are just like those lepers; who we were, what was done in our life, and how we react. Pastor Jared challenged us to examine our heart and see if we are among the nine, or the one.
Tonight we continued on that same thought of Giving Thanks. What happens when we take time to turn back to Jesus to give Him thanks? It might feel against your nature to thank Him. But when you do, you will realize the details of all the other things He has given you. You may begin naming them one, by, one, just like the song says.
Count yourself among the thankful tonight. Carry the spirit of Thanksgiving with you every day, not just on Thursday.

11And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. 12And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: 13And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. 14And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. 15And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, 16And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. 17And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? 18There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. 19And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. (KJV)
