Living our thanks — thanksliving  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 11–19
Summary: In today’s Gospel, Jesus instructs us that returning thanks is important not only in our daily life but in our spiritual lives and in our relationship with God.

It’s Alive!  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 5–10
Summary: The church that is the body of Christ does not grow one brick at a time. Christ’s church grows one baptism at a time, one confirmation at a time, one new member at a time. The body of Christ grows as faith grows, and as long as we continue to trust the Holy Spirit, we will see that sort of slow, deliberate, persistent growth.

When Your Faith Makes You Well  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 11–19
Summary: While the obvious (and oft-repeated) lesson from Jesus’ encounter with the 10 lepers centers on giving thanks, there is more to this than the obvious. In the context of the disciple’s request, “Lord, increase our faith” (Luke 17:5), Jesus not only answers about “mustard-seed faith” but he also dramatically illustrates faith when he heals the lepers. One, a Samaritan, returns to thank Jesus, and Jesus declares, “Your faith has made you well.” We too can respond in faith when Jesus says “Go ...”

What Have You Done for Me Lately?  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 11–19
Summary: We ask God for help of various kinds but often forget to give thanks when we receive what we asked for. Our text shows us 10 men who asked Jesus for healing and got it, but only one of them returned to Jesus to thank him. Jesus commends him for his faith because real thanks to God is an expression of faith, of trust that God will provide all that we need.

The Fine Art of Being Thankful  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 11–19
Summary: Very early in American history a day was set aside on which to give thanks. The Pilgrims, having survived a difficult time, took occasion to celebrate and to give thanks to God. From that distant beginning the custom of Thanksgiving has continued in unbroken fashion. It is a sound instinct to keep this national holiday.

Exceptional Table Service  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 5–10
Summary: All of us are called to be servants for Jesus Christ. While masters typically do not associate with their servants, our master Jesus Christ does. Jesus wants to be in relationship with us. He wants to live and eat with us. This is proved most clearly through the sacrament of Holy Communion.

Can, Will or Won’t  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 5–10
Summary: Though we claim to serve an awesome and all-powerful God, we are quick to define tightly what we are able to do instead of what we will do in God’s service. With mustard-seed sized faith, we can be open to God’s power within us, instead of insisting on remaining specialists in God’s service.

Bridging the Distance  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 11–19
Summary: The 10 lepers were separated from society not only physically, but emotionally and socially as well. Jesus bridged all those distances, making the lepers well and giving them the opportunity to acknowledge the power of God. Unfortunately, only one of those healed recognized how close God had come to him. We too, live in the presence of a God who is at once both far beyond us and nearer than our own skin. Because of that, we have unprecedented access to God through Jesus Christ.

A Thankless Job  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 5–10
Summary: It’s not the size of our faith that matters, but the awesome power of the object of our faith, namely, our Father in heaven. The mountain will move because of the power of God -- not because of the depth or complexity of our belief. Along with a simple faith, our expectations should also be simple, especially in regard to our reward for faithful service. God will exalt those who have first humbled themselves.

A Hint of Compassion  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 17: 11–19
Summary: Without qualification, Jesus healed. His healing always changed lives. Jesus still heals today. In the story of the 10 lepers, we are reminded that Jesus’ healing can change lives dramatically and that his healing ministry is now in the hands of the church.
