“One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back….He fell face down at Jesus’ feet in thanksgiving to Him” (Luke 17:-15-16)
The gracious demonstrations of loving kindness and gratitude is all around in all creations, as this vacation of a family at the Red Sea in Soma Bay saved the life of a stranded octopus which was on its death bed and returned to the couples on the next day to show off its great gratitude of saving its very life! How true it is that , every creatures in this universe has the essence of God – “The Love” embedded in them!
On a journey to Jerusalem, our Gracious Brother Jesus Christ had to stop to address the voice of 10 Samaritan lepers, calling Him “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” He did had pity on these dying lepers and send His Word to heal them saying” , “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” . They all took Him on His Word and were healed on their way to get the cleansing certificate from their priest! As these octopus comes back to the feet of its savior to show its gratitude , one leper comes back fell face down to the feet of Jesus Christ worshiping Him! As usual our Master who always overpays for any act of our thanksgiving made this man “well” saying “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.” I am sure these wellness Word from the Master would have been made him whole in all areas of the rest of his life- his health, wealth, peace.. and his entire life becomes radiant towards LORD’s love!
“Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame”.(Psalm 43:5)
