This generation is characterized by bondage. How desperate are we to finally be free of the captivity that has beset us in so many ways? The miraculous healing Jesus provided to a leper and the ritual performed to acknowledge the healing both point directly to the cross. Can you fathom the desperation the Lord has to set people free from the prisons and cages that we have succumbed to? One touch from God and freedom arises! One moment in the merciful presence of our great Lord and there is newness of life! One instant of calling upon the name of Jesus and an eternity lies in our grasp. God has made us a new creation in Christ if we will press through the crowd to Him in our desperation. Christian, are you desperate enough? We must be free in this generation!
When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.
And Jesus said to him, “See that you tell no one; but go your way, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”
