Morning by Morning, February 16 - The Word Made Flesh Loving, Touching, and Healing Flesh and Blood
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Make me more like You today (1 John 4:17). ...
“Now a leper came to (Jesus), imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, ‘If You are willing, You can make me clean.’ Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, ‘I am willing; be cleansed.’ As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed” (Mark 1:40-42).
You are the Word made Flesh. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:1, 14).
In Your Flesh, as You walked this earth as both Son of God and Son of Man, You revealed the Heart of God in the flesh. In Your Flesh, You loved people of flesh and blood, in all their struggles, all their sins, all of everything in them that needed to know You and experience Your love for them. You loved people, saved people, healed people, freed people, encouraged people, released the abundance of life in You to all people who would come to You and trust You and put their faith in You.
Not only did You love them and heal them, You also touched them. Not only did You touch them in their hearts, You also touched them with Your hands.
That leper that day needed to be touched by Your love but he also needed to be touched by Your hands. He felt “untouchable.” He felt “unclean.” But You touched him and loved him made him clean with Your touch. You are the Word made Flesh, loving and touching and healing flesh and bone. Not only out of duty and calling, but also “moved with compassion.”
Move me with Your compassion today, Lord Jesus. Today we’re going among those who feel untouchable, unclean, isolated, lonely, sick, rejected and forgotten in an isolated colony in South India. But You haven’t forgotten them. May we carry Your heart of compassion and love. May we carry Your Message of healing and hope.
Would You stretch out Your hands through our hands, Your heart through our hearts, to let each one know they are loved and not alone. For You love us and never forsake us, and welcome us to embrace the mercy and love that only You can provide (Hebrews 12:5). You are “the same yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 12:8). In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today. In the love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
My friend, may you be moved with compassion as Jesus loves and touches and heals though you today in every way He desires, in Jesus' name. God bless you, my friend! And you have a great day!
