A Megaphone of Thanksgiving

I remember when our coach lost the use of his voice – he could only talk in a raspy loud whisper. So at practice, he used a megaphone and turned the volume to maximum. When he talked it would echo in the gym and sometimes make a very loud high-pitched squeal. But we were able to hear his instructions okay.

The Bible mentions a megaphone. This Sunday we will look at the story of ten lepers being healed by Jesus and how one came back and said “thank you” to Jesus in a megaphone voice (Luke 17:11-19).

How often do you do that? How often do you praise and thank God with the volume set to maximum? What would it take for you to be motivated to do so? This Sunday we will see what motivated this leper to praise God with such volume.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving -- the day in our yearly calendar when as a nation we pause and give thanks for our country and all our blessings. I invite you to gives thanks to God in a megaphone voice.


  • Track your blessings to their source Psalm 103:1-5
  • See the place gratitude has in healing faith. Matthew 1:21; Romans 10:9
    • “Healed” is a medical term to mean “mended, whole, or cured.”
    • “Cleansed” means “free from stigma or defilement, ceremonially clean.”
    • “Made you well” means “rescued from danger, saved.”
  • Let the measure of Christ's mercy be the measure of your praise. Psalm 35:27-28
