You Will Be Well…. Luke 17.11-19

It is strength in one’s Christian faith when he or she puts value or quality in faith in what Jesus does. We are in a world where we need the movement of the living God in our lives.  Humanity is a great piece of the work of God; but the fault of this world is that it is also a fallen world; alienated from the Creator of the world. I will not elaborate how the world fell except to say that a fallen world has never been God’s fault.

The Christian has faith in Jesus Christ; that He is the Son of God ‘God’s remedy’ to the human falling.  Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall and Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty Dumpty back together again. The good news of Christianity is Jesus Christ who can fix the human dilemma. 

The fixing of humanity is so powerful; whether it be the fixing of our health or of our soul.  God is willing to help us in times of trouble (Psalm 46.1).  When He does, how do we react?

Ten sick men were kept outside a city. Jesus was coming into their village as the sick men called out loudly for Jesus’ pity. Jesus told them to go to the priest; which was the culturally right thing to do to prove that one has been cleaned. As the ten men left, they were healed. One man looked at himself, saw he was healed, and then, returned back to Jesus to fall in thankfulness at His feet. This man showed, not only that he was healed, but that he was thankful to the One ‘Jesus’ who had healed him. The other nine, however, were also healed; however, they didn’t bother to come back to Jesus.   The healed man who came back took the time to recognize the Savior and Healer ‘Jesus Christ’. Jesus told him to go in confidence that his faith had made him well. 

The now healed man was more than just healed; he was well. The value of the Christian life is the will to take time for the things Christians should do. The fallen-ness of our human life may occasionally experience the ‘fixing’, but very few ever get well. Our wellness is revealed by our will to return to the One ‘Jesus’ who has made us well. The other nine were enabled to live another day; however, they were not well. Won’t you be like the one who returned to Jesus? If you do, it will mean a totally different level of commitment to Jesus in your life. You will be well….
