Sermon Discussion Questions


Starter:  Have you ever known someone who was healed?  What happened?


Dig Deeper

  • Read Mark 1:40-45
  • Note the courage of the leper.  In your opinion, what would give Jesus followers more courage to ask for healing?
  • Note the humility of the leper.  How could pride get in the way of God’s healing work?
  • Note the eagerness of the leper.  Do you know someone who is more comfortable being sick than being well?  Why are they that way?
  • Jesus’ great statement is “I am willing.”  How does this statement change the way you think about God?
  • When the Bible speaks about people being healed of leprosy, it uses the word “cleansed.”  What will change for this man now that he is cleansed?  How will he feel?
  • Jesus gives the man strict commands about his next steps.  He doesn’t do any of them!  What does that say about his relationship with Jesus?  Have you known someone like the leper – someone God has done something for but then they do not obey him?  Why do you think that is?
