Advent Unfolding – Day 6





   Week 1 – Revelation

  Day 6 – Miracle







   Eucharisteo - Thanksgiving –

  always precedes the miracle.

It happened that as he made his way toward Jerusalem, he crossed over the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten men, all lepers, met him. They kept their distance but raised their voices, calling out, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”

Taking a good look at them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.”

They went, and while still on their way, became clean. One of them, when he realized that he was healed, turned around and came back, shouting his gratitude, glorifying God. He kneeled at Jesus’ feet, so grateful. He couldn’t thank him enough—and he was a Samaritan.

 Jesus said, “Were not ten healed? Where are the nine? Can none be found to come back and give glory to God except this outsider?” Then he said to him, “Get up. On your way. Your faith has healed and saved you.”

                                                                                                                                                                                             Luke 17:11-19

We look at this and see the miracle of these 10 lepers healings – no more of this horrible disease,  no more living on the outside.  But to the one who came back, who couldn’t stop giving thanks, Jesus said, “ Your faith has healed and saved you – he was not only healed physically but this one received salvation  – he was healed spiritually, he received complete healing – complete wholeness

Which was the greater miracle…
