Matthew 8:2-3

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.

Lord Jesus, You are so willing to meet us, if only we will come to You – if only we will reach out to You and ask. But so often we continue to wrap ourselves in the filthy rags of our own sinfulness. We become comfortable with our misery. O Lord, I don’t want to live without wholeness or holiness. Your healing is so near and so powerful. I know You are willing to touch me. I’m reaching out to You. Speak to me those powerful words, “Be clean.”
