What do you want from God and for what purpose?
1. 10 wanted healing.
Lk 17:11-19 "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."
2. Only 1 desired God's glory.
"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."
3. He ALONE was saved.
"And he said unto him, Arise, go thy way: thy faith hath made thee whole."
LESSON - Check your motives and be careful for what you ask of God. If what you desire is for your own comfort and pleasure, you may get from God your request but it will not be God's BEST. Only 1 leper received God's best, TOTAL HEALING, both physical and spiritual for God's glory.
