If you are willing

A man with leprosy came and knelt in front of Jesus, begging to be healed. “If you are willing, you can heal me and make me clean,” he said.”   Mark 1:40

Right now, I am involved in the Fall in Love with God’s Word Challenge. We are on Day 15 and it has been such a blessing. We are digging into God’s word together and looking at some of the miracles of Jesus.

In today’s blog post, we are going to look at another of Jesus’ miracles in Mark 1:40-45. In this miracle, a man with leprosy comes to Jesus in such a beautiful way. First, the man comes. Second, he kneels and lastly, the man with leprosy begs Jesus.

 

Come to Jesus

First, this man with leprosy came to Jesus to solve his problem. He challenges me to come to Jesus first. Anytime I struggle with something, it is so easy to turn to my husband or my friends. They are tangible and can respond right away.

But, my heart’s desire is to come to Jesus first as this man with leprosy did. To talk with Jesus about my problems and even my joys before I tell someone else.

 

Kneel

The next thing the man does when he sees Jesus is kneeling. Why is that so significant? Because when you kneel, you are in a position of humility. This man recognized Jesus’ authority and as he kneeled before Him, he was stating His trust in Jesus.

Each day, I want to kneel before God physically but more importantly in my heart. My desire is to be in a position of humility and trust that Jesus knows what He is doing.

 

Beg

Lastly, this man begs Jesus to heal him. I looked up the definition of beg. It means to ask earnestly or humbly for something. The man with leprosy had already come humbly to Jesus. And now he is earnestly asking for healing.

Do I earnestly ask Jesus for whatever I need? Do I come to Him each day begging Him for wisdom, peace, and strength? Oh, how I wish I could say that I do this. All too often, I try to do things on my own strength. My desire is to beg Jesus each day for whatever I need.

 

I am willing!

My favorite part of this miracle is when Jesus says “I am willing!” I love how willing Jesus is to heal. Jesus reached out and touched the man to heal him. Instantly, the leprosy disappeared and the man was healed.

Friends, Jesus is willing to heal you too. He is ready to reach out and heal with a word. Where do you need physical or emotional healing today? Come to Jesus, kneel before Him and earnestly ask for whatever you need. Jesus is ready with open arms.

Are you a new mother?

Do you wish you had a mentor to be a guide by your side through this thing called motherhood?

Do you wish you could grab coffee each week, with someone who has been at this longer?

Friend, even though you and I may live in different states (or even countries), I’d still love to teach you what I have learned through being a mother of 4. I’d be honored if you checked out my book, “Becoming an Intentional Family”, where I dive into the valuable things I have learned about being a Christian parenting and raising kids who love the Lord.
