The Good News – The Desire of the Savior
Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
The Desire of the Savior
Third Sunday in Lent
Mark 1:40-45 [ESV]
And a leper came to him, imploring him, and kneeling said to him, “If you will, you can make me clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him and said to him, “I will; be clean.” And Jesus sternly charged him and sent him away at once, and said to him, “See that you say nothing to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to them.” But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in desolate places, and people were coming to him from every quarter.
