Thei Mosaic law com pelled the leper thus to stand afar off, Lev. 1i1: 15. 46. Their salutation was thie cry of the needy made to one In d authority. The word "'Master" here used is not that which usually means teacher, but rather one that would be applied to one in authority, an ap pointee or a commander They must have either recognized his power or, having heard of his miracles they ap pealed to him to exorcise a like power on their behalf. There was no other who could possibly give them relief. even so the sinners' only hope is to meet Jesus. Hle, and he alone, can cleanse them from their uncleanness and wretchedness. Jesus never passed that way again, this was their only opportunity. Their need drove them to him. Ofttimes our distress and need are blessings in disguise in that they drive us to Jesus. Though afar off, and though only one drew nigh (v. 16), yet it was the privilege of them all, as it is also our privilege to "draw nigh." Eph. 2:13. Their cry did not fall upon deaf ears (Isa. 59:1). It was a brief, but to the point, peti tion. They knew what they needed and drove straight to the point. Their ap peal to his mercy met with immediate response, so also will the cry of the needy sinner meet with a like re sponso (Rom. 10:13). The record does not tell us about the faith of these men and it is useless for us to spec ulate. The cry of faith will have its answer. Matt. 9:29. Their prayer was brief) it must have been humble, be lieving, earnest and specific, for when "be saw them" (v. 14) he gave direc tions as to the manner whereby they night be cleansed. He could have spoken or have touched them, but his way at that time was to utter a command. This resulted in (a) a ful filling of the law, (b) a test for their faith, (c) a testimony to the priests. They showed their genuine earnest ness by immediate obedience, they took him at his word. The record I wonderfully suggestive, "as they went they were cleansed." Faith and worlks,. obedience and results. When we act upon his simple yet sublime word we. too, will receive a blessed answer to our every need. A. we look to him, our great high priest, as we take our eyes off of self, we shall be cleansed, John 14:21,23. Bore Witness Before Men. II. A Grateful Heart, vv. 15-19.--The revelation of cleansing brought differ ent results to these lepers. "One of them" camne back at once to explress his gratitude. lfefore he could scarce ly speak his petition. now he cries with a "loud voice." This is a sugges tion as to the completeness of hil cure. lie at once uses his restored voice to "glorify God," and it looks as though he bore this witness before he testified to men; lat being healed seems also to have opemnd 'p eyes as to the character of Jesus. ., not only returned thanks. but "worshiped him." Nor dot's Jesus refuse to ac rept such worship--an evidence of his deity, see Acts 1,:25.26; John 5:232 and Hllb. 1:6,. Thi' nine were too oc cupied in rejolcing witlh their friends. too busy with fulfiling duties from which they had long been separated, to express their thanks. It Is significant that this one was a Samaritan--" stranger." This is the one of whom less would be expected, yet Luke re cords other good things about the Samaritan, C('h. 10:33-35. (Luke, as the companion of Paul. shows us not only in his gospel. but In his life of Paul Chiist's outreachlngs towards the Gen tiles.) The Jews have no deallngsa with the Samaritans cJohn 4:9), but sin makes strange companions. Jesus expresses in his question (v. 17 it. V.p great astonishment, which 'A s evi dently twofold: (a) first the lari.

The ingratitude of the nine is indeed reprehensible, bit we need to examine well our conduct before we condemn others.
