Touched Now Go Home

Touched Now Go

Jesus met a man with an advanced case of leprosy…
Jesus reached out and touched him…
Instantly the leprosy disappeared…
Then Jesus instructed him not to tell anyone what had happened…
(Luke 5:12-14)

What are you doing Jesus? Don’t you know touching a leper can make you defiled and unclean?

How can God let himself become defiled and unclean?

What’s that you’re saying Jesus, that love is more important? Hug the filthy person? Eat stale bread with the poor? Mingle your tears with those in the depths of sorrow?

Jesus tells the ex-leper not to brag about it or turn it into a big show. Just be quiet and go show the priest.

Jesus tells some people to go make a lot of noise and start a ministry. He tells others to go home and quietly live it..
