"Power and Pity" (Matt 8:1-4)

In this gospel text, Jesus heals a man full of leprosy. Here, the Spirit reveals both the power and pity of God toward the most desperate cases. We are also shown how to approach God for grace, and the proper way to respond to his mercy.

Correction: two brothers lovingly brought to my attention that this was not Jesus' first healing. While not essential to the point, it was still a factual flub on my part. Thanks, guys!
