Week 8 – Devotional 2 – Jesus Heals 10 Lepers – The Pain of Rejection
Tuesday (22/04/2014) – Read Lk. 17:12,13
Why do you think the lepers stay at a distance from Jesus? Read Leviticus 13:45,46.
Based on the above text from Leviticus, how do you think a person who’s got leprosy would feel about himself?
What did they do when they saw Jesus?
What did the lepers want from Jesus?
1- Many people are far from Jesus because they feel themselves unworthy to be closer to Him; they feel unclean. Do you know anyone like that? What can you do to help change this image?
2- Go back to yesterday’s list of rejected people you did. Can you imagine the feeling of loneliness, shame and guilt these people carry? Pray again for them.3- What if you take a day during this week to go visit a drug rehab center, or aids patients at the hospital or a home for handicapped people to show God’s grace to them?
