The Miracle of Jesus

“1When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him.And, behold, there came a leper and worshiped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.”  Matthew 8: 1-3

Jesus Heals a Man with Leprosy

Jesus was coming down from the mountainside, after teaching to a large crowd. On his way, a leper approached him with an expectant heart. Jesus was not expecting a visitor, but this man knew how to get Jesus’s attention. He came to Jesus and knelt before him and worshiped him. The word worshiped in this text, is “proskyneo”, which means fall on knees and touch the ground with your forehead as an expression of profound reverence. And he said, “Lord if you are willing, you can make me clean.” The root word for “you can” is “dynamai” which means you are capable of, to be able, strong and powerful! It is clear that leper expressed faith in Jesus that he was more than able.

It is very important to note that not only the man approached Jesus expecting something from him (in this case his healing) but he worshiped Jesus openly with utmost reverence and declared publicly that he is more than capable to perform a miracle in his life. The key elements for receiving a miracle in your life are your worship for Him and your faith in Him!

And it is a fact that anytime anyone approaches Jesus with a heart of worship in faith, His answer to your request is “I AM Willing!”. Jesus stretched out His hand and touched him and said, I am willing, be clean! In His willingness to heal the man, Jesus declared be clean and released it by his touch. Jesus spoke the end result “Be thou clean”. He touched him and declared what he wanted to happen. Immediately that touch and word resulted in his healing supernaturally!

Do you need a miracle in your life? Are you waiting for an answer for your prayer? The truth is He is willing and He is able! The question is are you ready to approach him and worship him today? Do you believe that He is able and willing to perform the miracle? If you are then you have the answer! Believe And Receive in Jesus name!
