Scripture: Luke 5:12-16

While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy. When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”

Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.

Then Jesus ordered him, “Don’t tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.”

Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses. But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

Luke 5:12-16

  2. What are you covered with during this season? Do you feel isolated? Explain.
  3. Has this crisis taught you humility? In what way? Do you have the faith to call out to Jesus? 
  4. Do you believe that Jesus still touches the unclean or outcasts today? How? Do you believe that Jesus still has the power to cleanse you from your sin? Will you ask Him now?
