Often we confess “we are by nature sinful and unclean.” The Word may be familiar enough, but perhaps we underestimate the contagion of sin and the things that contaminate both body and soul. “Lord have mercy,” these lepers teach us to pray! Thanks be to God that “the blood of Jesus, His Son, cleanses us from all sin” and that our God is “faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

A sermon on Luke 17:11-19 (ESV)

Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity / 2 September 2018

Luke 17:11-19 (ESV)

11 On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee. 12 And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13 and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14 When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16 and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”
