I Am Willing

Matthew 8:3. He stretched out his hand and touched him saying, “I am willing. Be clean!” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

We’ve looked at the Old Testament to see how God defines Himself. Did you notice God almost always uses the present tense? God is in the here and now and that’s where we should be. Now we look at Jesus, the Word of God incarnate in the flesh of man. We first see Him say, “I Am willing.” Jesus is willing to touch us and heal us. The healing is not only for the physical but also for the emotional and spiritual. As that man’s leprosy was cleansed, so also are our sins. Jesus didn’t single that man out. The man had to go to Him and ask Him for healing. So, too, with us. We must go to Jesus and ask for cleansing from our sins and the healing we may need.
