“29 He gives power to the faint,
and to him who has no might he increases strength.
30 Even youths shall faint and be weary,
and young men shall fall exhausted;
31 but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;

they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”
OK team. Here is the latest plan for Sunday. We are planning to live stream a worship service from the church office. We will have some worship music, prayer and a message from Luke 12.

And when he saw Jesus, he fell on his face and begged him, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” 13 And Jesus stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately the leprosy left him. 14 And he charged him to tell no one, but “go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, for a proof to them.”
The leprous man expressed his faith by coming to Jesus and falling on his face before him. In response, Jesus reached out his hand to touch him. Normally this was prohibited because anyone touching a leper would become unclean. In this case, the opposite happens, the leper becomes clean. Christ’s ability to cleanse the leper was greater than any power the leprosy had to make Christ…
