Mt 8:1-3 When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. Mt (2) And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. (3) And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
THE CLEANSING TOUCH
Most of us can not even imagine the effects of the disease of leprosy. It was so devastating that the people were cast out of the communities and lived miserable lives of desolation. The faith of this man was enough to cure him and make him clean and whole. The effects of the disease cleansed him and restored his physical health.
The effects of sin on us spiritually are no less horrible than than the effects of leprosy was on the body. Many are living today with decaying spirits, cast out of their families and polite society because of the devastation of sin in their lives.
A touch of the hand of Jesus can cleanse and restore the spirit and soul so that it is clean. His forgiveness will cleanse us from all sin and forgive all unrighteousness.
I hope you have been touched by the hand of Jesus.
