Key Takeaways

  • Leprosy is often a picture of sin. All of us have been infected with a disease that is responsible for almost all the problems in our lives and the world as a whole – sin.
  • The curse that infects us is sin – Sin is like leprosy: It attacks us from the inside out. It isolates you relationally, from God and people. The more it progresses, the more numb you become. It distorts your appearance – makes you more unattractive.
  • Christ alone can cure us. Jesus says we are never enough on our own, but He is.
  • The man with leprosy throws himself at Jesus feet and admits his need for Jesus.
  • Being a Jesus follower isn’t about trying to be a good person, it is about recognizing you are not a good person – you are a broken sinner, and you need a Savior. God can put us back together and give us eternal life.
  • Jesus is not what you expect, He’s better.
  • Christ’s compassion towards us – Jesus moved and touched the man with leprosy. But why? Jesus didn’t have to heal the man through His touch, Jesus touched him because Jesus felt compassion for the man.
  • If you’ve been running from God, know that you stir compassion in the heart of God.
  • Compassionate dads move toward their children when they are hurting, God does the same but even more for His children.
  • The story of the leper is a perfect picture of what God is willing to do for all of us.
  • Christianity is recognizing that we are the leper, but there is One who can cure us who is full of compassion for us.
  • If you come to Jesus and ask for mercy, you will never be the same.
