Are you looking for something more than a simple reminder to give thanks or a list of blessings? In this expository sermon on Luke 17:11-19, the account of Jesus healing ten lepers, Pastor Hinkle draws upon a structural analysis of the passage presented in Arthur Just’s Commentary on the Gospel of St. Luke. Professor Just suggests looking at the passage from the outside in. The result is a fresh look at the incident and a sermon that goes much deeper than “Hey, don’t forget to give thanks.”

They asked Jesus, is it lawful to pay taxes? He asked for the coin and it had Caesar’s image on it. “Render to Caesar the things that Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s,” he said.
You, dear reader, bear God’s image. This sermon is about what that means and why and how we are to give ourselves to God.
