Luke 17:11-19 As they 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.”
Jesus had been traveling for a period of time. He had reached the border area between Galilee and Samaria. The Bible tells us that He was arriving at a village when these 10 individuals confronted Him. Jesus must have been tired and exhausted, but He always had time for those who would call out to Him.
The Bible tells us that these ten lepers cried out to Jesus. In the KJV it says they lifted up their voices. In the NIV it says that they called out in a loud voice. These people knew their predicament and they knew that without Jesus’ help they would be lost. Jesus was ready to stop and hear their cry. In the same way, today, Jesus is still ready to hear your cry, no matter how sick or dirty you are.
