12 And it happened when He was in a certain city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him saying, "Lord, if you are willing, You can make me clean."
13 Then He put out His hand and touch him, saying, "I am willing; be cleansed." Immediately, the leprosy left him.
14 And He charged him to tell no one, "But go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as a testimony to them, just as Moses commanded."
15 However, the report went around concerning Him all the more; and great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by Him of their infirmities.
16 So He Himself often withdrew into the wilderness and prayed.
This man has a severe skin disease.
We do not know how this man recognizes Jesus' authority to heal, but he clearly understands that Jesus can. Then, Jesus does something that no one else would ever do: He reaches out and touches the diseased skin.
Imagine, the uncleanness slowly creeping up Jesus' skin and eating away His flesh.
The flow is reversed. Cleanness flows out of Jesus. He touches the unclean and makes them clean. Later in Luke He will touch the dead and they will become alive. Cleanness and death have met their match.
Taking a closer look, Jesus does nothing miraculous here. No waving arms in the air, no hocus-pocus, no wands. He simply says "be cleansed." The Bible says the leprosy left immediately.
The miracle is not the point. In fact, the miracle is rarely ever the point. The miracle behind the miracle is the faith of the diseased man.
Jesus heals, saves, restores, and makes us whole. All it takes is faith in Him. He makes what is wrong, right. The severity of our conditions does not matter to Him.
Take your sickness, burdens, worries, anxieties, wrongs, sins, and most dismal situations to Him. Have faith in Him and He will do what nothing or no one else can ever do.
Christ's power conquers all.
