Walking to the Cross, My Lenten Devotional

Walking to the Cross is a 40-day devotional designed for the Christian season of Lent. It invites you to make walking, reflecting and prayer a part of your daily Lenten practice. Just as Jesus traveled the long journey to the cross, we believe that walking is an act of spiritual and physical devotion.

Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Mark 1:40-42

Friday, February 10, 2012 – Epiphany 6, Year B

Mark 1:40-42A leper came to Jesus begging him, and kneeling he said to him, “If you choose, you can make me clean.” Moved with pity, Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, “I do choose. Be made clean!”

Jesus healed the leper, but in making him clean he was also restoring his relationship with both God and his community. For Jesus, healing was not only an act of curing, but it was also an act of restoration.

Prayer: Almighty God, help us be restorative presences for those who come before this day. AMEN.
