Friends in Christ Weekly Message
February 14, 2009
A leper came to him, begging on his knees, If you want to, you can cleanse me.
A couple of things about the attitude of the leper stand out for me:
Deeply moved, Jesus put out his hand, touched him, and said, I want to. Be clean. Then and there the leprosy was gone, his skin smooth and healthy.
Mark 1:40-42 (Message*)
The leper has a lot to teach us. We also need to approach the Lord in a humble spirit and having faith in Christ's power.
- He was very humble, begging on his knees.
- He had faith in Christ's power.
