Sermons about Leper
Pastor Alex Ruffer and three of our teens give testimony of their time spent in Ghana, Africa ministering in schools, orphanages, villages, and a leper colony.
Part 7 of our FUEL Simply Jesus Series. Looking today at Miracles & specifically at Jesus making a leper clean in Matt.8:1-3 & Mk.1:40-45
God did not create us to be lonely. We have an intrinsic need for relationships. When Jesus healed the leper, He did more than cure a disease. He took the leper from a life of loneliness and isolation, into a life of relationships and community. Jesus stands in that thin place where the veil between Heaven and earth are lifted. He stands there, ready to heal our loneliness.
A leper + a Savior = life change... A model of faith + a model of works = situations change... This is perhaps one of the most emotionally charged encounters of Jesus recorded in the gospels - if we have ears to hear... Are you in need of His healing touch? “The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be indifferent to them: that’s the essence of inhumanity.” - George Bernard Shaw
