The Ten Lepers
The difference between the leper who returned and the other nine is that only to him did Jesus say that his faith had saved him. Not only was his infirmity healed, but his faith embraced the Healer, and gave him thanks. And Jesus acknowledges this, saying that only this one gave glory to God. So let all give glory to God only by acknowledging Jesus as God and recognizing him as our Redeemer, for without him there is no faith at all. And so let us ever return to him to thank him, as we do here in this place this day. And every time you stay away you are with the nine, and imperiled by the wicked and godless generation among whom you live. The do not sleep unless they make someone fall, and they are everywhere. And only those who return to hear him speak again to grant and sustain our faith are safe, to whom he says, your faith has saved you. Sermon for Trinity XIV. The video is here.
