Come to Jesus, and be Healed
  • 2 Kings 25:1-12
  • Psalm 137:1-6
  • Matthew 8:1-4

A person with leprosy faced isolation from their community during Jesus’ time and even now. In today’s Gospel proclamation the person with leprosy is confident that Jesus is able to heal him but he is not sure if the Lord is willing. He approaches Jesus and utters his request and receives the healing. What is our “leprosy”, that keeps us from getting close to Jesus and others. We feel unclean in our sinfulness and steer away from people and God. We have no other hope except in the Lord. Jesus is willing to heal us spiritually, physically, emotionally and psychologically if we come to him. He loves everything about us, including our flaws. Jesus loved the “untouchables,” he sought them out and made them whole again. Let us go to Jesus despite our “leprosy” and no longer stay separated from him because of our shame and fear. After we receive his healing, we should show ourselves to others to testify to the goodness of God. What God did for us, he wants to do for others.

PRAYER: Abba Father, may I have the faith to reach out to you and ask to be healed. Amen.
