“And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
One common mistake we make is assuming that Jesus sees as we do. We might write ourselves off as too weak, too dirty, or too insignificant for the Father. However, this is not true. Jesus’ response to everyone who feels this way is the same as the one He gave to the above leper in Matthew 8:3: “Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, ‘I am willing; be cleansed.’ Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”
Jesus is willing to forgive you and start a new journey with you. He is willing to forget the evil you have done or the mistakes you have made, take you by His mighty hands, and proclaim that you are His child. He is willing to take what you see as a weakness and turn it into something beautiful.
Jesus is willing to heal you, rescue you, and be your Lord and Saviour. But, will you accept Him? Or will you allow the devil’s lies that you are not worth it to keep you away from God’s endless mercies?
Let this truth ring in your heart today: “Jesus is willing to bear my burdens, wipe my tears, provide all I need, and accept me as dirty as I seem.” Now, the decision is yours.
Will you surrender?
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you once again into the fold of Christ Jesus. If you have not yet given your life to Jesus, please do not hesitate to surrender all to Him. He is willing to accept you again. Say this prayer: “My sweet heavenly Father, I thank You for having me at heart. It is for this reason that You sent Your Son to die for us. I acknowledge that I am a sinner. Please forgive me, wash away my sins, and make me whole again. I hereby accept You as my Lord and personal Savior. Come into my heart and begin Your work of glorious eternity as I yield to You. Amen.”
- Father, I thank you for your endless mercies. I ask that you help me see how willing you are to help me and to show me your grace in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, I ask that you break the hold of guilt and condemnation over my life. Help me see me as you see me.
- I pray for as many that are under the bondage of sin that you break those bondages and give them a good life henceforth in Jesus’ name.
