“ Summary, Part 4 (final) ”
CONCLUDING POINTS: 1. Pastors: prayer is a vital ministry. J.C. Ryle suggested that if there is little fruit from a lot of work, there may be little private prayer. 2. Christians: prayer is essential to killing sin. God blesses the desire in the place of the act. The leper must have looked for many ways out of his situation, but then he saw Jesus and knew he had found it. 3. Churches: to advance the Kingdom, we must cry out to God. Genuine revivals were supported with a lot of prayer.

“ Summary, Part 3 ”
B. Jesus told him to show himself to the priests, and to make an offering and a testimony. In LEVITICUS 13-14, the priests were not just religious leaders, but also had a role of health inspection. In our current text, Jesus, though the Law Giver, shows Himself to be obedient to the law, though He is often accused of breaking it. IV. POPULARITY OF THE LORD (v. 15). We don’t know that the healed leper told people what happened, but it is a recurring theme in the Gospels that Jesus’ works are followed by growing crowds. V. WITHDRAWAL AND PRAYER OF THE LORD (v. 16). This was His habit. As the crowds came, He still took the time to withdraw and pray. LUKE points this out more than the other Gospel writers. A. Communion with God was the mainspring for all Jesus did. The mainspring is the gear that sets all other gears into motion. B. Pressing opportunities and duties made time alone with God essential. Duties on earth are not a trade-off with prayer; they are a positive correlation. The more duties we have, the more we must pray.

“ Summary, Part 2 ”
D. He implored Jesus (v. 12). 1. He had confidence in Jesus’ ability to heal him. 2. He was conscious of his condition. II. HEALING OF THE LORD (v. 13). A. Jesus’ power to heal. “Be thou clean.” This is the power of His word. B. Jesus’ willingness to heal. He didn’t just speak, but reached out and touched him. Leprosy is symbolic of sin. It is the spiritual equivalent of a virus. It is destructive, and it will kill you and drag you into Hell if you don’t turn to Jesus. It is repulsive. Do we look at sin this way? It is filthy (cf. 1 JOHN 1:9). Seen as such, Jesus’ cleansing is all the more convicting. He created visible change in the leper. He heals ugly sins and ugly hearts, even sins the world hates, including the sins that we hate. Jesus can not only heal the external problem, but the internal one as well: in a damaged relationship, for example, He can not only offer forgiveness, but reconciliation. III. INSTRUCTION OF THE LORD (v.14). A. Jesus told him to not tell anyone. Why the secrecy? 1. The time wasn’t right (cf. “My hour has not yet come”). 2. He didn’t want a following of miracle-seekers. 3. He was still hiding the Kingdom of Heaven (cf. the parables).

“ Summary, Part 1 ”
[Note: We had audio difficulties this day, but the audio exists for when Pastor Chanski preached this message on December 18, 2011. That message is titled “The Gospel According to Luke Part 45: Jesus' Compassion and Power to Heal.”] We have many preoccupations and distractions in our own lives, but no one had more that Jesus in His life. In our source text, we notice a few things: I. COMMUNION WITH THE LORD. A. He pled for healing (v. 12). Today, leprosy is called Hansen’s Disease. Whatever its form, it is a serious skin disease, and the leper in this passage was “full of leprosy”. LEVITICUS 13-14, 2 KINGS 7, and NUMBERS 5:2-3 provide some background on leprosy. 1. It can lead to disfigurement and death. 2. It is regarded as filthy and defiling (cf. Leviticus 13). They had to be cleansed (NUMBERS 5). 3. It led to social restrictions; e.g. leper colonies. 4. It is destructive to the body; it eats away at the nerves. 5. It is repulsive to others. All of this makes leprosy a biblical picture of sin. B. He saw Jesus (v. 12). He knew who He was. C. He fell on his face (v. 12). Cf. the MATTHEW and LUKE parallels. 1. He had respect for Jesus. 2. He was humble. “If you are willing…” 3. He was in a state of utter desperation.
