Jesus Heals a Man With Leprosy. - Luke 5: 12-16.

12 While Jesus was in one of the towns, a man came along who was covered with leprosy.[b] When he saw Jesus, he fell with his face to the ground and begged him, “Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.”
13 Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. “I am willing,” he said. “Be clean!” And immediately the leprosy left him.
14Then Jesus ordered him, “Don’t tell anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer the sacrifices that Moses commanded for your cleansing, as a testimony to them.”
15 Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses. 16 But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.

What is your contribution to your salvation?

"Your leprosy". “Your sins”. “Your poverty”. “Your needs”.
Go see Jesus…fall on your face…beg from the ground…ask for the will of God for your life.
Then wait.

Listen to the beloved Son of God. Listen to Him! …Listen to Him! ...Listen to Him!
Jesus will do something greater than for you. The same thing he did for Simeon.
Jesus let Simeon hold him in his arms. Jesus will touch you, an "untouchable."
If you desire His will, then His will be done unto you as it is in heaven.
Jesus is always willing to do his will and only his will. Your whole body will become an ear.
You will hear Jesus say, “I am willing”. "Be clean."
It is God's will for you to be clean. He came to wash away your sins.
Under His authority and power you will be immediately cleaned. Sin will leave you immediately.

Jesus knows that words are cheap; He does not want you just talking; He wants you to show up.
Go to church and let the leaders see you offering your gifts. You have been absent from church.

That IS your testimony to them. Because of your changed life…others will trust Jesus.
"The crowds will come to your Jesus to be healed." You are a witness…testify!
