“Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” (v13). When Jesus met a group of ten lepers who called out to him, he healed them immediately. They rejoiced, but only one returned to “fall on his face at Jesus’ feet” (v16), giving thanks. Jesus commented on the fact that this “foreigner,” a Samaritan who supposedly didn’t worship God in the proper way, was the only one to praise God for his healing (v18). The others rejoiced at the miracle, yet they ignored the Person who had performed it.
“The kingdom of God is in the midst of you” (v21). Jesus is more than the answer to our prayers; He wants us to know and be known by him.
