To The Family
“And one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, and with a loud voice glorified God, And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks.”
As soon as this leper saw he was healed, he praised God. We want God to act quickly when we request His help, but too often we are very slow to praise Him for His help.
“With a loud voice glorified God.” The loudness of the praise says the healed leper was not a secret believer. He was not ashamed to honor the Lord in the public. “And fell down on his face at his feet, giving him thanks.” In his thankfulness (which was a part of his praise), the healed leper prostrated himself before Christ.
The healing miracle not only made the man thankful, but it made him humble, as well.
