"GOD'S GLORIOUS GRACE"
Intro: Leprosy is one of the most feared of all diseases. Under the law the leper was considered unclean and had to be separated from society. Until recent years they had leper colonies in many parts of the world. Carville, Louisiana. Dr. Hanson first isolated and identified the leprosy bacillus and to remove the stigma of the word "leprosy" they now call it Hanson's disease.
I. IN THE SCRIPTURES LEPROSY HAS BEEN CONSIDERED AS A TYPE OF SIN.
A. The mystery of its origin.
1. How is leprosy transmitted?
2. It just seems to show up.
3. So with sin, "For by one man sin entered into the world and death by sin so that death is passed on to all men for all sinned."
a. But how is it passed on?
B. Its effect on people.
1. It first kills nerve cells thus it is a painless disease.
a. It usually starts in the body's extremities such as the feet or hands and slowly progresses.
b. Contrary to popular misconception, your fingers or toes don't fall off.
c. Because you have no feeling, you are subject to severe burns without knowing it.
2. Sin first attacks the willpower, to resist.
a. The first time it was hard to do.
1. You knew it was hard to do.
2. You had pangs of conscience afterwards.
b. The next time a little easier.
c. It became progressively easier until it became a normal practice.
1. Conscience seared with hot iron.
2. Beyond feeling.
d. Finally you have no will to resist doing it.
1. You may now want to stop, but you can't.
2. You are trapped, no willpower to resist.
C. It is incurable.
1. Even with all our research and modern science, no cure has yet been found.
a. They can now arrest the progress but they cannot cure it.
2. So sin is incurable, deadly disease. This is what makes the words of our text so remarkable.
II. "NOW THIS IS THE LAW OF THE LEPER IN THE DAY OF HIS CLEANSING."
A. In the law God made provision for His divine intervention.
1. What is incurable or impossible by man can be accomplished by the grace of God.
a. This is what the gospel is all about.
b. God can give you power and victory over the grip of sin on your life.
2. The interesting use of the term "cleansed" used both of leprosy and of sin.
a. The leper who came to Jesus, "Lord if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean, and Jesus touched him and said..."
1. You need the touch of the Lord on your life.
B. Priest was to go out of the camp to examine the person.
1. If he was diagnosed to be clean, he was to bring two birds alive to the priest.
a. The one was to be killed in a clay vessel with running water
b. The other was to be dipped in the bloodied water then released to fly away.
1. What emotions do you suppose they felt as they saw the dove flying away with the bloodied water splashing off its wings?
