Sermon Summary: For the next three Sundays, we will focus on the topic of thankfulness to God. We are to be thankful for all that he has done for us. And for the followers of Jesus, it is a requirement to be thankful to God. We are commanded to “give thanks in all circumstances” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Today’s passage tells of Jesus healing ten lepers, but only one took the time to return and thank him. There are three things we can learn about thankfulness from the passage…

  1. God’s mercy to us leads to thankfulness
  2. Our lack of thankfulness indicates we under appreciate God’s blessing.
  3. We are to thank the people God uses to bless us.
