3-29-20 // The Miracle Worker
One day, while Jesus was ministering in a certain city, He came upon a man covered with leprous sores.
When the man recognized Jesus, he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet and begged to be healed, saying, “If You are only willing, You could completely heal me.”
Jesus reached out and touched him and said, “Of course I am willing to heal you, and now you will be healed.” Instantly the leprous sores were healed and his skin became smooth.
Jesus said, “Tell no one what has happened, but go to the priest and show him you’ve been healed. And to show that you are purified, make an offering for your cleansing, just as Moses commanded. You will become a living testimony to them!”
“After this miracle the news about Jesus spread even farther. Massive crowds continually gathered to hear Him speak and to be healed from their illnesses.”
- The prerequisite for a miracle is an impossible situation!
- “A miracle is an extraordinary event manifesting as divine intervention in human affairs.”
Three about Jesus when it comes to miracles…
- Jesus is a noticer!
