Commentary on the Gospel of
Lectio - Divina
Mark 1: 40-45: Jesus continues to demonstrate his power over evil by healing the leper. When the man found out that he was healed from leprosy, he proclaimed about the awesome power of Jesus.
Jesus did not only free the man from physical ailment but set him free to give witness to Jesus. What hinders us from becoming free to preach about Jesus? Do we have the guts to ask Jesus to set us totally free to serve him wholeheartedly?
When we are sick, do we only pray for physical healing or do we ask to be whole again to serve the Lord wholeheartedly? Ask for total liberation to follow Jesus in a radical way.
Try to be part of a healing ministry that is holistic in nature, that is, not only praying or working for physical healing but for integral human development.
