Luke 17- The Ten Lepers

And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee. And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off: And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us. And when he saw them, he said unto them, Go shew yourselves unto the priests. And it came to pass, that, as they went, they were cleansed. Luke 17:11-14

As we are living in the COVID age of the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, we should ask ourselves “What Would Jesus Do”? Well let’s look at what Jesus did, Christ was approached by Ten Lepers, and they cried out to The Lord “Jesus Have Mercy On Us”

Now understand leprosy was a horrific disease and highly contagious. The Mosaic Law forbids anyone to go near or touch someone with leprosy. We live in a day and age where the Church wants to ban healthy people because they are not vaccinated, is this what Jesus would have done? No as we see Jesus didn’t avoid the lepers , he also wouldn’t ban anyone from coming to the gospel

Jesus commanded the lepers to “Go show yourselves to the priests” and as they went by faith, they were healed. Notice their act of obedience to The Lord proved their faith and healed them. Notice also this is a display of the New Covenant, the priests were never able to heal anyone from leprosy, but Christ is!

And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan. And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine? There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger. And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole. Luke 17:15-19

A couple things here, first there were 10 lepers who were healed but only one gave glory to God. How often do we see this everyday, God doing miracles for people but they give Him no thanks or glory. Secondly , the man that gave Jesus praise was a Samaritan, a non Jew. This again is a demonstration of the New Covenant, God is not just saving Israel but the entire world through Jesus Christ

Jesus said “Your faith has made you whole” The lepers faith in Christ is what healed him, it wasn’t the works of the leper it was the works of Jesus. Its the same way we are saved by faith in Christ, not by our works but the works of Jesus on the cross

What would Jesus do? He never rejected anyone from coming to salvation, anyone who called upon the name of The Lord shall be saved in Jesus name Amen!

    I totally agree 100 % with not excluding anyone from church. But didn’t Jesus also say we should follow the laws by the government as a demonstration of our faith in God that he put them in place, so if their are mandatory vaccine policies we should follow them, not by our faith in vaccines or viruses, but in our faith in him to overcome all?

      I think that’s a deeper discussion than just blindly following all approved laws, for example abortion and same sex marriage are legal however they are in opposition to Gods Law, so who do you follow? As the Apostles stated “We follow God rather than Men” (Acts 5:29)

      Secondly I would argue all vaccines are either created or originated from aborted fetus cells, this is an abomination to God and wouldn’t be sanctified by The Lord in my opinion

      Thirdly I would argue that the “vaccine mandates” are not constitutional and technically not legal, as we have seen many federal judges overturn the vaccine mandate
      Like I said this is a more complex issue than most would admit, however most are not discussing it….God bless!

        Ooh those are some great insights to look into more. Thank you for sharing. I’m in healthcare so I feel personally responsible for all the people I come in contact with, especially if there non-believers to protect them at my own risk.
        But I never hear about the aborted fetuses , so I’ll look into that further. I feel like you’re 💯 percent right on our faith should be in God’s law above man made laws, and as for abortion although our law alllows it, it’s still a choice so then we should rely on God’s law always, and Jesus example of following the mandatory laws of government . But in any situation Loyalty to God 1st
