The cleansing of a leper

Adobe Acrobat

Leprosy is a powerful illustration of sin - it begins deep down, but slowly progresses to ruin the whole person. At that time, there was no known cure, except a divine intervention. This healing of a leper gives us powerful lessons about true faith, the power and sovereignty of Jesus, and the duties of discipleship.

Luke 5:12-16

12And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. 13And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him. 14And he charged him to tell no man: but go, and shew thyself to the priest, and offer for thy cleansing, according as Moses commanded, for a testimony unto them. 15But so much the more went there a fame abroad of him: and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by him of their infirmities. 16And he withdrew himself into the wilderness, and prayed. (KJV)
