Luke 17:13 “And they lifted up their voices, and said Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.”
When these ten lepers saw Jesus, the shouted to him saying, “Master, have mercy on us.”
They could have called Jesus by any other name but they rather chose to use the name “Master”. The word Master has used here means, “Commander” and “the one others and things prostrate before”. These folks invoke the meaning and authority in the name of Jesus which many people knows nothing about.
A Master is somebody in control. He is one that makes others or something submit. He is one that has the power to control or influence events, other things and men. He is one that can change the outcome of a matter or situation.
These guys though leprous, knew that all they needed to change their situation is the Master. They knew that Jesus can easily influence the kind of result they’ve been getting.
Friend, I have news for you; whatever is wrong in your life has a Master. There is “One” who can change the outcome or results you’ve been getting. That contrary situation or circumstance has a Boss or Master that it listens to and obeys without asking questions. That situation has remained unchanged not because you didn’t do anything about it, but because you’ve not told the Master to handle to it.
Let me show you something those lepers knew about Jesus:
Philippians 2:9 “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:”
Philippians 2:10 “That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;”
Philippians 2:11 “And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
Note that they didn’t just say Master, have mercy on us, they started with the “spiritual” name of the Master. His name is JESUS!
The book of Philippians was not yet written but these lepers already have a revelation of the name. They knew the capacity, capability and possibilities in the name.
To be continued…
