Create in Me a Clean Heart, O Lord (series)

An Empathetic Heart (part 2)

Look at your left hand for a moment. 

The                                            of our hands. 

Unmanaged and they become                                       : clawing for power, seducing for pleasure. 

Managed and our hands become instruments of                                         .

Surrender them and these five-fingered appendages become the hands of                                                         

          “When He came down from the mountainside, large crowds followed Him.  A man with leprosy came and knelt before Him and said, Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.  Jesus reached out His hand and touched the man.  I am willing, He said.  Be clean!  Immediately He was cured of His leprosy.  Then Jesus said to Him, See that you don’t tell anyone.  But go, show yourself to the priest and offer the gift Moses commanded, as a testimony to them.”                                                                    Matthew 8:1-4

Drawing of Jesus' hand touching a hand that is covered with sores and the words "Jesus Heals the Leper." -Matt 8:2

Notice that the touch did not heal the disease.  Matthew makes it clear that it was by a                                         of Jesus, “I will.”

The loneliness, however, was treated by a                            from Jesus.
