“Jesus saw them and healed them.”
Even though the lepers ‘stood some way off’ from Jesus, they ‘called out to him’ still. They recognized him for who he was ‘Jesus! Master!’ and they asked him to have pity on them. Jesus ‘saw’ them and healed him, even though they were some distance from him. They obeyed what he told them to do, and they were healed. We too can cry out to Jesus where we are – even though we think we are far from him. He sees us and touches our lives where we need to be healed.
When the leper found himself cured, he ‘threw himself at the feet of Jesus’. There was no more distance between him and Jesus because now he had been touched by Jesus in a personal way.
Wherever we are in our relationship with Jesus, he will ‘see’ us if we call out to him. After we encounter the healing touch of Jesus, we are the ones who turn back to God, thanking him and praising God for the touch of Jesus in our lives.
