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.

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?
