"He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him—and he was a Samaritan." Luke 17:16 NIVYou know those challenges where you have to write an entire story in one sentence? This verse kind of reminds me of that. You don't even have to know the context to feel the emotion, but if you do it is so.much.better.
Jesus had healed a group of ten men, all suffering from leprosy. He had initially instructed them to go show themselves to the priests, and while they were going (in faith) He healed them. Out of ten, only one came back. And he wasn't even Jewish!
He came back to Jesus right away, because he recognized immediately from where his healing had come. And he threw himself at Jesus' feet-a completely humble posture of service. Absolute recognition of Jesus' authority and position.
When is the last time you threw yourself at His feet in gratitude?
Christ gave His very own life for yours.
He healed you of the disease of sin.
He rescued you from death.
He promises to always be with you.
He gave you the Holy Spirit.
Pick one. Pick them all. And throw yourself at His feet.
No matter your situation, I promise there is something in your life today for which you can throw yourself at Jesus' feet in gratitude. Look for it until you find it. He is SO good.
