“Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.”
Why did the leper say “If You are willing.”? Surely the Lord Jesus was willing to heal every sick and hurting person who came across his path. Surely the leper knew that – Jesus had been ministering in Israel for awhile now – surely the leper had heard of his reputation. Had he ever turned down someone for healing? So why did he say “If You are willing.”?
