Mark 2:41; Matthew 8:3 Lepers were never a part of society, ever. How dare this man come up to Jesus! How dare he go up to this famous teacher healer, and endanger His health! Are you willing to approach Jesus with the broken, perhaps disgusting parts of your life? Are you so ready to change that you risk rejection? Are you longing to ask, “If you are willing?” Jesus went way beyond—He touched the leper! He touched him before he was healed. Are we willing to touch the marginalized? We must have the compassion of Christ to do so. Jesus is still willing to touch the desperate, unacceptable today. Jesus is ready to embrace us with His touch. Find someone to love in Jesus’ way.
