In this article we give an explanation of something that is happening at this time and that the Word tells us that this happened too in those times, and at that time, the crowd walked with Jesus, some for food, others for healing and others for salvation of their souls.
11 And it came to pass, as he went to Jerusalem, that he passed through the midst of Samaria and Galilee.
12 And as he entered into a certain village, there met him ten men that were lepers, which stood afar off:
13 And they lifted up their voices, and said, Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.
14 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.
15 And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God,
16 And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks: and he was a Samaritan.
17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? but where are the nine?
18 There are not found that returned to give glory to God, save this stranger.
19 And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole.
Only one of the ten who were healed returned to Jesus, prostrated and gave thanks. Jesus asked him about the other nine. Here we can see that very few people are grateful of God, most people turn away from God when they receive a miracle. But this man was grateful, he came back and thanked God.
In this day people only seek a transient earthly blessing (health, food, etc.) and when they achieve that blessing, they just move away, and they forget to seek salvation, which is eternal.
It is very important that we seek God not for what He can give us, but for what He is. It is good that our service to God be voluntary and with love, without expecting anything in return. God bless you.
I love the Lord…

Do you want miracles or Him who does the miracle?
To be sincerely grateful to God for his gifts, his blessings, is something truly and only properly done by someone who is a believer. The unbeliever seeks to receive benefits: food, goods, money from charitable associations or from the church, or government aid; but when he has obtained help he goes home and he is not grateful to anyone.
In our days no one believe in miracles. People believe in the wonders of modern technology, they are attracted to something men have achieved.
It is only in the field of religion that people can think about a miracle when an unexpected work is done, like a great healing, or if an economic recovery happens.
However, what is more important? The wonder, or God who makes the wonder…?
Obviously it is God, that cares for his people, and loves the world and the people on it. The Bible says:
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to usward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to
repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9)
Then we must consider our God and Saviour, who is eternal, instead of wanting to receive his wonders, which are just for the time we live here. In fact, whenever we get some remedy for our needs, or when people are comforted in their distressing situations, we all should take it as a motive of gratefulness to God, as Paul tells us:
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also you are called in one body; and be you thankful.”
Our Lord deserves our love and our eternal gratefulness because he treats us far better than we deserve. In the person of his beloved Son, he came to this evil world to save people, for he does not want them to perish but that all should come to repentance.
Truly there is no bigger miracle than this: that men and women of this world come to repentance and accept Jesus as their Saviour, for the glory of God
