Radical Compassion

November 24, 2013 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: The Gospel of Mark

Scripture: Mark 1:40–1:45

Radical Compassion
Mark 1:40-45
November 24, 2013


I. The Leper’s humility. Mark 1:40

II. The radical compassion of Christ. Mark 1:41-42

III. The healing of the leper illustrates our condition and need.

IV. The healed man disobeys Christ’s command. Mark 1:43-45

Questions for reflection:
• Christ models radical compassion in healing the unclean leper.
How have you experienced Christ’s compassion?
• How can I display Christ's amazing compassion for others?
• How does the miraculous healing of the leper serve as an illustration of spiritual realities?
• Can you think of an example of when a person might be tempted to justify their disobedience to God’s commandments today?
