Touch the Untouchable!!

As we sat watching the kids ride the rides at Wet 'n' Wild water park, I was day dreaming about my childhood, and was thinking intently about how fast my life has gone. I remember vividly saying to myself.."Wow the year 2000 will never come, it is so far away!!" Now I am ready, in a few years, to send my last off to college.Where has your life gone? Have you accomplished what you set out to do?

Are you satisfied with the things you have mastered?I am sorry to say I have not accomplished near what I believe God has left for me to do. Unfortunately, for people like me..most of my life has been a huge learning experience..just to get me here and I still feel half baked.."Hurry God turn the oven up" Some people just " get it"

I still don't even know what the "it" is.Even when we don't understand why we are here, God does have a plan and uses us, if we are usable.Do we get up each morning saying.."Okay God ..here I am" or "Okay God here I go" If it is the latter, I ask you to pull out your spiritual heart and examine it..Check it out.. Is it pliable? Is it workable? Does it listen to God when He speaks?? Do we walk by our own plan for the day? Or plan made the night before? Do we stop when we hear a whisper from Him saying.."Hey. I need you to do this for me"

We are the eyes, ear, hands, feet, and voice of Jesus who has physically left this world. He left His Spirit in us, and we are HIM. We are His BODY on this earth. We do what He would have done if He were still here!!So when the whisper comes..don't ignore it..move like Jesus would have.Love the beggar, hug the un-huggable, touch the untouchable...Jesus did..He touched the leper and healed Him..We must do that too!!

We must do the unthinkable..the gross, the "out of our comfort zone" things.Did you know that the leper had such wonderful faith to even seek out Jesus!! Lepers had to yell "UNCLEAN" when approaching a crowd of people..imagine the guts it took to even get to Jesus for perhaps a healing or not.The leper didn't even know if Jesus would touch him, let alone heal him.

If God puts a leper in your life...take the time to heal him. Touch him and do what Jesus would have done.We only have so much of this stuff called TIME. I am running out..so I am going to listen more intently for His whisper and touch the untouchable..What about you?

Wow! Thank you for that! I think we all have a leper in our lives and this is a good reminder of what we should be doing.
