Luke 17:19 And Jesus said to him, "Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well."
We need to read this verse several times over. It contains good words, good promises, that we need to be sure that we have heard and understood.
God, our God, is waiting to be gracious to us. He is looking for an opportunity to show mercy to us, to do justice for us and to bless us with His presence and kingship. Did you know that? Are your ideas about God that He is all about judgement and punishment, that - far from waiting to be gracious - He is just waiting for us to step out of line so that He can zap us? Then think again; hear today's text and receive a fresh revelation of who God is!
