Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem.
As he went into a village; ten lepers, keeping their distance, they called out, saying Jesus, master, have mercy on us.
When Jesus saw them he said to them, go and show yourself to the priests, as they went, they were made clean.
Leprosy was a feared and horrible disease, and because it was so low, and contagious.
Leopards were not allowed in the city.
I want you to notice that Jesus was on his way to Jerusalem, but he heard their cry.
I want you to know that Jesus is never too busy to hear you.
Now one of the side effects of this disease was that you will lose your voice.
So by them being a long distance from Jesus; if just one of them called out, Jesus may not have heard just one of them.
So they came up with a plan where all 10 of them would call out. Because they were all in the same boat, they all had the same condition.
It did not matter if they were white, black, green, yellow, tall, or short.
They all needed help.
One could have been rich, one could have been poor, but what they needed money could not buy.
One could have been from the hood, and one could have been from Hollywood.
But it did not matter; because what they needed was each other.
I need you, you need me, we both need Jesus.
So here was the plan.
On the count of three; we all are going to shout Jesus !!!!
On the count of three; we are all going to be on the same accord.
Maybe because they all shouted to Jesus Master, Jesus heard them.
We need to find someone else in the same condition that we are in.
We should not be ashamed of our condition.
If you are sick,
If you are broke,
If you are lonely,
If you have a habit, find that person with the same problem, and come together and shout out Jesus, Master, he will hear all of us.
Because of their disease one voice Jesus may not have heard, but when we come together it makes a difference.
Jesus will always be there to hear our cry.
The Word says when two or three gather in his name, Jesus is in the mist.
I want you to notice that all 10 leopards were not healed immediately
Because we walk by faith and not by sight, they started walking. Some things you have to walk it out.
As they were walking they were healed, all of them because they all came together, and shouted Jesus, Master, and Jesus heard their cry.
Again I need you, You need me, we both need Jesus.
I want you to notice that all of the lepers received physical healing, but only one received spiritual healing.
That is the one that came by to tell Jesus thank you, thank you, He praised Jesus for his healing.
Jesus told him he was made whole.
We must thank God for our healing, we must thank God for family, and friends.
They were willing to come together, and call on his name.
If we came together, and called His name together; we will be healed.
I need you, You need me, We both need Jesus.
