The Appropriate Response of Gratitude

Anniversaries and milestones ought to elicit in us an appropriate response of gratitude. 

It should be the posture of every Overcomer.

Luke 17: 11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. 15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him– and he was a Samaritan. 17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

God is not obligated to heal any of us.  Even those who are not healed here on this earth can yet receive eternal healing by their faith making them well.  It is with humble gratitude that I give thanks to the LORD for an act of healing 10 years ago and the blessing of work to do.  Mostly though, I thank Him for the work He did so that eternity is a place of no more crying or pain…no more diseases…no more cancer…no more death…and that by faith in Jesus, we will live to experience this heaven forevermore.
