We continue to receive God’s blessings through His humble servant Pastor London Lee. He continues to use him nightly revealing deeper yet simple truths tucked in the scripture. Nikisha Lee has been a blessing as well, exploring TEN TALENTS acronym as she shares Health Nuggets.
On Health Nuggets, Mrs. Lee has so far presented on trusting in divine power, exercise and nightly rest. Last evening she drew parallels from the book Crazybusy: Overstretched, Overbooked and about to Snap! She emphasized the need for temperance. The need to find a balance, the need to learn to say NO and refuse to overburden ourselves with stuff we don’t need, and to cast our cares upon Jesus and trust Him.
Pastor Lee’s message was entitled, “The Touch” given that we have 5 senses– sight, touch, hearing, smell and taste. He wondered which one of the five we would consider least and be willing to lose. He then focused on the story found in Matthew 8:1-4, the story of the Leper who braved stigma, hate and multitudes and pressed forward to Jesus and begged Him for healing. Without hesitation Jesus touched him and he was healed.
Going line upon line, precept upon precept, a little here and a little there, he combed Leviticus, Numbers, 2 Kings, Isaiah, Mathew, Mark, John, I John and Revelation and clearly showed how Jesus was the only remedy for sin. He clearly showed how leprosy equated to sin and how through the ritualistic sacrifice of a bird and use of earthen vessels and hyssop, one could be declared free of leprosy by the priest. He emphasized the irony of blood which stains red , yet can cleanse as white as snow. This he reminded us was only possible through the miracle of Jesus Christ who is our high priest and gift of God to humanity.
We can be cleansed from sin and set free if we confess and surrender our pride, arrogance, our self righteousness, our malice and guilt–our sins to Him. John 8:36 Therefore If the son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
