8:2 Suddenly, a man with leprosy approached Jesus. He knelt before him, worshiping. ‘Lord,’ the man said, ‘if you want to, you can make me well again.’

OT Flash Points

Build to last

NT Flash Points

Prerequisite to building:
Turn, focus and trust Jesus’ blueprint


Take your imagination into captivity to Jesus’ perspective
Don’t try to think a problem through
You’ll only muddle it
OBEY, in particular, the nature of Jesus
And it will clear
Simplicity – the secret of seeing clearly
When we try to be wise or think ourselves wise, we see nothing distinctly
