Mark 1:40 ¶ And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
41 And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.
The man in this verse typifies each and every one of us. He was a leper. He was unclean. He could not go to the temple. He was an outcast. He was not considered fit to touch others. His leprosy ( a type of sin) controlled and dominated his life.
But Jesus passed by, and faith was quickened in this man's heart. He saw that His only hope for cleansing was in Jesus. He cried out to Jesus.
Jesus was moved with compassion and simply responded, "I will." Jesus didn't make the man plead and beg. He didn't give him a performance test. He didn't examine the man to see if he was worthy or how much money he had donated. He simply said, "I will."
Do you have a problem that controls and dominates your life? Cry out to Jesus. He will be moved with the same compassion and give you the same answer that He gave this poor leper; I will!
Hebrews 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his] brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

A farmer rushed to his phone one day to report that his nearest neighbor's house was on fire.
He called 911. In the calmest voice he could muster, he reported the fire was about two miles down the road.
The dispatcher asked "How do we get there?"
The farmer hesitated a few seconds, then asked, "Don't you guys have those big red trucks anymore?"
Keep Looking Up!
