Then He put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately the leprosy left him.
‘I am willing…’
Are there any sweeter words that can be spoken by Lord Jesus? It is the beginning of all of the good that only He can do in a life.
The great ‘I Am’ is willing.
…to touch the ugliest of sins.
…to listen and lean in.
…to speak life and truth.
…to submit Himself to the will of His Father.
…to walk out front alone.
…to receive the castigation and criticism of the rancid religious.
…to set His face like flint for Jerusalem knowing what torture awaited Him and that it was His purpose.
Yes, willing even to die that we might live.
He is willing.
It is a love that is beyond my understanding.
A love clearly expressed in His willingness.
While we were yet sinners….because He is willing, we won’t perish.
