In our class we are looking at the example of Jesus and then asking, “how should we be like Him?” In today’s text a leper comes to him saying “if you are willing you can make me clean”. What did Jesus say? What would we say?
Before dismissing applying this to ourselves “because only Jesus could perform miracles”, consider that there are non-miraculous ways we can help those who are sick and otherwise in need. We could even feed 5000 if we were so inclined (though not with five loaves and two fishes!).
What does the text say about Jesus’ heart that explains why He was willing to heal the leper? What does this mean?
