The Touch of Jesus



The Touch of Jesus


Luke 5:12-16, Pastor Howard Harden

Message delivered March 15th, 2015 during the morning services.



Jesus used the healing of the leper to not only show compassion, but also as a teaching moment.  In today's Scripture, we see three ways in which this miracle teaches us about the greater miracle of salvation.

  1. A PICTURE of man's CONDITION. (vs. 12)
    • The SERIOUSNESS of his DISEASE.
    • The HUMILITY of his APPROACH.
    • The GREATNESS of his FAITH.
  2. An EXAMPLE of God's KINDNESS. (vs. 13)
  3. A SYMBOL of Christ's PROVISION. (vs. 14-16)
