“IF YOU ARE WILLING”

READ:
Matthew 8:1-4


And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
-Matthew 8:2

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1 Kings 10-11
Luke 21:20-38

Molly wanted her dad’s help, but she was afraid to ask. She knew when he was working on his computer, he didn’t want to be interrupted. He might get upset at me, she thought, so she didn’t ask him.
We need not have such fears when we come to Jesus. In Matthew 8:1-4, we read about a leper who didn’t hesitate to interrupt Jesus with his needs. His disease made him desperate – he had been ostracized from society and was in emotional distress.
Jesus was busy with “great multitudes,” but the leper made his way through the crowd to talk with Jesus.
Matthew’s gospel says that the leper came and “worshipped Him” (v.2). He approached Jesus in worship, with trust in His power, and with humility, acknowledging that the choice to help belonged to Jesus. He said, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean” (v.2). In compassion, Jesus touched him (leprosy had made him “untouchable” by the standards of the Jewish law), and he was cleansed immediately.
Like the leper, we don’t need to hesitate to approach Jesus with our desire for His help. As we go to Him humility and worship, we can trust that He will make the best choices for us. – Anne Cetas
What an example this leper is to me, Lord. Give me a heart of worship, of confidence in Your power, and of trust that when I bring my needs to You, You’ll make the best choice. May I surrender to Your will.

Let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy. – Hebrews 4:16

WORKING OUT AN ALTERNATIVE

In this uncommon race that we have enlisted in, if you rest prematurely, or take your eyes off the daystar we are following, you will be distracted. Another thing that can divert your attention is opening your mouth prematurely to reveal your secret to ‘sympathetic friends’. Never share a testimony until it is...More

THE BLESSING OF THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving to God, especially for gifts and blessings received, is required and expected. God abhors ungrateful people. God expects Christians to give thanks in all circumstances they are confronted with. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Apostle Paul wrote:
