The leper fell on his face before Jesus. He knew of the power Jesus had to heal. From his posture of humility he spoke, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Jesus is mercy and compassion. He put out his hand to touch this man, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.”
In my own posture of humility, I too ask to be cleansed. I have no doubt of the answer I receive. My Lord is willing to cleanse me. His mercy and compassion are more than a story, it’s a truth.
