Christ’s healing had no borders, no ethnic preferences

Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the lepers are cleansed

Luke 7:22

As Jesus was walking from Samaria and Galilee, ten lepers called out to him saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” Jesus replied, “Go show yourselves to the priests.” (Luke 17:13-14) As they walked away, they were healed. But one—a Samaritan—turned back. Falling at Christ’s feet, he praised God with a loud voice. Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?’” (Luke 17: 15-18) Christ’s healing had no borders, no ethnic preferences. His blessings reach as far as human suffering is found. Though an outsider, Christ healed the Samaritan as the beloved. Because of this, his gratitude was all the greater.
