Where are the Nine?

Passage: Luke 17:11-19

Jesus tells ten people to look for a priest. This is an interesting command because Jesus is the ultimate priest. We no longer need priests to go on our behalf because he did. It’s almost as if Jesus was saying, “I’m right here!” Nine of the ten miss this point. As Christians, it’s easy to focus so much on being faithful, as if our faithfulness saves us. Instead, our relationship with God should focus not on our faithfulness but on his. When we focus on God’s faithfulness, thankfulness and gratitude bubble up within us.
