We read the story in Luke 17. There was ten of them that day. They watched as He entered the village, the law required them to stand at a distance.
They were lepers, but it did not keep them from crying out to Him, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!”
Hearing them, He responded, “Go show yourself to the priests.” They left to go do just that, for it was the priests who would have to pronounce them “clean” of leprosy.
This going, and obeying, would take faith on their part, as they were not yet healed. Their healing would come to them in route to the priests.
And it did.
One of the men, seeing that he was healed, came back to Jesus to thank Him for what he had done. He was the only one who returned to give glory to God.
Jesus identifies him as a “foreigner”. Luke calls him ”“ a Samaritan.
A Samaritan, hated by most, returned with a grateful heart to give thanks. He took nothing for granted.
But what about the other nine? What did Jesus notice and ask? What can we learn from this story? Join me at Woman to Woman Ministries HERE as we look at the rest of this story.
