When all seems lost, where does our hope come from? In this passage, we find Jesus healing a man with leprosy, an outcast from society who had exhausted all options of redemption. Jesus not only approaches this man, but also touches, heals, and instructs him. Our own spiritual sickness makes us eternal outcasts from God, but Jesus comes to us with a cure and calls us to respond by faith. Would you come, kneel, and ask Jesus to make you clean?

 

Matthew 8:1-4
