This morning we begin with the familiar story from Luke of the ten lepers. Pastor Casey points out that this healing took place in the midst of obedience to Jesus’s command. Luke 17:14 So when He saw them, He said to them, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” And so it was that as they went, they were cleansed. Pastor Casey goes on to point out that one of the ten, felt a responsibility to live in response to what Christ had done for him. It seems a reasonable service, to return with thankfulness and praise. This former leper did not hurry off to carry on his own life. Pastor Casey urges us to be the one that lives a life of response to Christ.
Scripture reference: Luke 17:11-19

Sometimes on Sunday mornings the people of LJCF bring additional encouragements for the fellowship to hear. Not only does God speak to us through the regular preacher, but also through the experiences other people in the congregation are having with him.
Listen to some insightful encouragements shared by Cortney Kluver and Nona Schaff.
