Jesus was traveling about, doing what he said he came to do, preach the Good News, and he is interrupted by a man with leprosy. “Jesus if you are willing you can heal me and make me clean.” (v.40) Jesus’ first response was compassion. I worship a God with passion, gracious, slow to anger, abounding with love and kindness. (Joel 2:13)
It is so easy to forget the basic truth that God is for me. With so much pain, fear & disillusionment in the world, it’s so easy to believe the lie that I am on my own. But I’m not, not by a long shot. I have a Father who is present, active, and available & He is full of compassion for me. Praise to you oh Christ!
Prayer: Jesus, if you are willing you can heal me and make me clean. I am yours. Amen
