Matthew 8:2-4 Mark 1:40-42 Luke 5:12-15
2And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, Lord, if You will, You can make me clean. 3And Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, I will; be clean!And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4And Jesus said to him, See that you tell no one; but go, show yourself to the priest. And offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a testimony to them.

40And a leper came to Him, begging Him and kneeling down to Him, and saying to Him, If You will, You can make me clean. 41And Jesus, moved with compassion, put out His hand and touched him, and said to him, I will; be clean! 42And He having spoken, the leprosy instantly departed from him and he was cleansed.

12And it happened, as He was in a certain city, behold, a man full of leprosy! And seeing Jesus, he fell on his face and begged Him, saying, Lord, if You will, You can cleanse me. 13And stretching out the hand, He touched him, saying, I will! Be clean! And immediately the leprosy departed from him. 14And He commanded him, Tell no one, but go and show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, for a testimony to them. 15But the word about Him spread even more. And great crowds were coming to hear, and to be healed from their infirmities by Him.

  • The man asked Jesus, if He was willing, the man did not realize that it is always God's will to heal. But regardless of what the man thought, he asked Jesus to heal him! We also need to reach out and ask and take our inheritance. For as children of God; yet you have not because you ask not, James 4:2.
