The Greatest Gift

Luke 17

  1. On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Samaria and Galilee.
  2. And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance
  3. and lifted up their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”
  4. When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.

Luke 17

  1. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice;
  2. and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan.
  3. Then Jesus answered, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine?
  4. Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?”
  5. And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

Colossians 2

  1. Therefore, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,
  2. rooted and built up in him and firm in your faith just as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

Colossians 2 cont’d

  1. Be careful not to allow anyone to captivate you through an empty, deceitful philosophy that is according to human traditions and the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
  2. For in him all the fullness of deity lives in bodily form,
  3. and you have been filled in him, who is the head over every ruler and authority.

But what if things are really bad?

  1. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?
    Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?

The love of Christ overcomes
