“Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean. Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said, ‘I do will it’” (Lk 5:12-13)
Yesterday I spoke about His voice. Today He shows His love expressed by touch. It wasn’t just a touch. He touched a lepper, a man who was unclean, not-to-touch. He stretched out His hand and touched him. “And leprosy left him immediately.”
I come to Him to be touched, by Him, by His love. He does not mind my lack of perfection in almost all areas of my life. I am not gentle enough, nor respectful enough, my daily gift of self is far below the gifts I receive. But I know, after every meeting with Him, that when I ask Him for His touch, He does not only touch me, but also gives me a hug, but also holds me firmly in His arms.
Lord, touch me today with all your love and make me clean, please. This is not only for me. This is also for my sisters and brothers. To share with them what I have received from You. “That will be proof for them” (Lk 5:14).
