Living on The Edge of Life 

IF YOU WERE A JEW LIVING IN JERUSALEM AROUND THE TIME OF CHRIST, AND YOU HAD RECEIVED A DIGNOSIS THAT YOU HAD LEPROSY (LEPROSY IS AN INFECTIONIOUS DISEASE THAT CAUSES SEVERE, DISFIGURING SKIN SORES AND NERVE DAMAGE IN THE ARMS AND LEGS.)  YOU WERE AS GOOD AS DEAD AS FAR AS ALL OF YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND EVERYBODY WHO KNEW YOU WERE CONCERNED.

 

MOST COMMUNTIES OF ANCIENT TIMES HAD WHAT THEY CALLED LEPROSY COLONIES THAT WERE PLACED ON THE VERY EDGE OF THE SOCIAL ECONOMICAL AND SPRITUAL LIFE OF THE COMMUNITY WHERE THEY LIVED.  THE LEPER COULD NO LONGER HAVE CONTACT OR ANY FURTHER COMMUNICATION WITH ANYBODY WHO LIVED OUTSIDE OF THE LEPER COLONY. 

 

PEOPLE WHO HAD LEPROSY LIVED ON THE VERY EDGE OF LIFE. THEIR LIVES WERE  COMPLETELY CUT OFF FROM THE WORLD   THAT THEY KNEW AND ALL THAT THEY KNEW. THE ONLY WORLD THEY HAD WAS THE WORLD OF THE LEPROSY COLONY. THE LEPER WOULD LIVE THE REST OF HIS LIFE IN TOTAL ISOLATION AND WHAT MADE THIS ISOLATION EVEN WORST IT WAS COMMANDED BY GOD.( LEVITICUS 13:44-50) HE WOULD LIVE IN PAIN DAILY WHILE WATCHING HIS HANDS AND FACE DISFIGURED FROM THE ADVANCE STATE OF THE DISEASE BUT AT LEAST THE LEPER STILL HAD ACCESS TO GOD EVEN THROUGH HE HAD NO ACCESS TO THE WORLD. LITERALLY HE LIVED ON THE VERY EDGE OF THE LIFE HE ONCE KNEW. 

 

MY DEAR FRIENDS IF YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS THING THAT YOU CALLED, I, ME AND MY IS WHAT YOU ARE THAT VERY MISTAKEN THROUGHT PLACES ONE ON THE VERY EDGE OF LIFE.  THE LEPER IN HIS MOST HORRID LIFE STILL HAD ACCESS TO GOD.
