During this time of tumult and trouble that is ripping apart families and friends, neighbors and nations, we need to stop pretending that we’re ok. That’s what Adam and Eve did when they dressed in fig leaves. They were not “ok,” and neither are we.
Leprosy was a “type” for sin: it was loathsome, spreading, incurable, and the Israelites were to avoid lepers. Yet Jesus, seeing the leper’s faith, reached into his condition, into “sin”, and touched the man.
For us that are in Christ Jesus, by faith children of God, to casually receive and allow worldly sins which the enemy of God uses to damn those made in God’s image to allow those sins to permeate our lives, now that is just unacceptable and needful of repentance.
If we change, Jesus will change the ending of our story. If we pray a plea like Psalms 51:10 (ESV), “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” And, we apply self-control to our lives our Lord will change us, and we will have victory over those sins.
