Mark: The Lepers Rise

November 8, 2015 | Jim Ramsak | Mark 1:40-45

"Lepers.  Who would have thought that Jesus would come to heal lepers?  The outskirts of society - perhaps the "down skirts" of society... They were definitely there.  No hope but Jesus.  Thank GOD they have no hope but Jesus!  Jesus pressed the downtrodden into a mold that even they could not escape from without his help.  But then he offered it to them, free of charge.  He gave it to them, open to all.  He offered himself to them for nothing.  What a great God we have!"
