Who should be characterized most by gratitude? Luke shows us. On his way to Jerusalem, Jesus happens to stop in a village. There he encounters ten lepers. They crying out for mercy.

Faith and it’s actions

James says that a person is justified by what they do and not by faith alone. Is this a contradiction in Scripture? Why? A reminder that Christ is the focal point and foundation of our faith.
