Bible Story:

Luke 17:11-17

On His way to Jerusalem, Jesus encountered ten lepers. They cried out to Him and He healed them. Only one leper, a Samaritan, turned back and praised Jesus for healing him. The Samaritan expressed his faith in Jesus and was healed from his sin, reconciled to God again through Jesus.



Thankfully, God does not just leave us in the broken world, but is repairing the brokenness through His Son. From the very beginning of time, God promised He would fix creation, and He kept His promise by sending Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus came to live on the earth and willingly died on the cross so that sin’s power over creation would be broken forever.
