Hansen’s disease (also known as leprosy) is an infection caused by slow-growing bacteria called Mycobacterium leprae. It can affect the nerves, skin, eyes, and lining of the nose (nasal mucosa). With early diagnosis and treatment, the disease can be cured.(www.cdc.gov) 🏛️
MY BEST FRIEND told me this amazing story to tell you today – “The Ten Lepers” which is full of ACTION and MERCY from the heart of God.
The story of 10 lepers being healed comprise a group of people excluded from community life because of their medical condition. They are considered the outcast portion of the society.
The lepers, “keeping their distance”, call out to Jesus, not specifically to heal them but to “have mercy on us!”
Their call for mercy, though, must indicate a desire to be healed of their afflictions.
🌴The short narrative shows only ten percent (10%) of those who were healed or granted favor of the best of life can afford to thank and give glory to God.
Carefully examine the tale how the amazing power of God moves and how the 10 lepers demonstrate their faith. 🏛️
THE TEN LEPERS
AS JESUS and his disciples continued onward toward Jerusalem, they reached the border between Galilee and Samaria, and as they entered a village there, ten lepers stood at a distance, crying out, "Jesus, sir, have mercy on us!"
HE LOOKED at them and said, "Go to the Jewish priest and show him that you are healed!" And as they were going, their leprosy disappeared.
ONE OF THEM came back to Jesus, shouting, "Glory to God, I'm healed!"
He fell flat on the ground in front of Jesus, face downward in the dust, thanking him for what he had done.
This man was a despised Samaritan.
💡JESUS asked, "Didn't I heal ten men? Where are the nine? Does only this foreigner return to give glory to God?
AND Jesus said to the man, "Stand up and go; your faith has made you well."
*The Parable of the Ten Lepers (Luke 17:11-19)
