A thought write, journal entry
I was thinking about the 10 lepers and how Jesus told them to go show themselves to the Priest when they asked that He help them. As they went their way, because they were in the process of movement in doing that which they were told (obedience), they were healed physically. In my youth and up until today I looked at that passage as the "one" grateful person. However, today I see more. When Christ asked where were the nine - that was a jewel treasure piece or hidden treasure. Why? Whenever we go through something, Christ reveals Himself to us in a new way. We come to know Him anew. Christ was sending the 10 to Himself, however, only one had eyes to see. Only the one increased in relationship and therefore realized he had to go show himself to THE PRIEST.
