It came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy; who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. - Luke 5:12 (KJV)
In today’s reading, we find a man confronted with bad news: he has been struck by a painful and incurable disease. The effects of leprosy (now called Hansen’s Disease) are visible on the skin: blemishes, wounds, and bruises that in severe cases disfigure the body. Can we find any good...
I can find hope for healing in Jesus.
Those with Chronic diseases
