Take a look in the mirror…


Matthew 8:1-4:

When Jesus came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed him. 2 A man with leprosy came and knelt before him and said, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”

3 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” Immediately he was cleansed of his leprosy. 4 Then Jesus said to him, “See that you don’t tell anyone. But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”


Jesus’ miracles:

  1. The miracles demonstrated God's compassion for people
  2. The miracles revealed Jesus as the one the old testament proclaimed would appear
  3. The miracles taught us a spiritual truth

Three observations about the healing of the leper:

  1. Jesus receives anyone who comes in faith - vs. 2
    • Leviticus 13:45-46
  1. Jesus demonstrates compassion - vs. 3
  1. Jesus restores completely - vs. 4
