Misery Meets Mercy (Mark 1:40-42)
Eddie Adams – Senior Pastor
“Jesus Sermon Series”
Preached at Calvary Baptist Church
Just about everything Jesus did during his time on this earth was contrary to the way most did things. What was left went right. What was supposed to go up, went down. Everything He did seemed contrary, backwards.
This is the case we study today in our text. He does something so contrary to his culture that it shocked those who saw it… Jesus was approached by a leper and Jesus accepted the leper. While others were running, Jesus was reaching.
THE MISERY OF MAN
Misery = leprosy
If you are willing, You can make me clean
THE MERCY OF GOD
Moved with compassion
I am willing – – – immediately
You are either on a mission to tell others or you are in need of being cleansed from your sins.
There is mercy for your misery
