If you choose

Matthew 8:1-3
When Jesus had come down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; and there was a leper who came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you choose, you can make me clean.” He stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I do choose. Be made clean!” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

I do choose!
Be made clean!
The words of one
who always chooses 
life over death
health over sickness
love over fear
The one who chooses
to lift up the downtrodden
to free the captives
to honour the poor
to heal the sick
to restore the dead to life.
The one who chooses us
as companions on the way
disciples, 
charged with walking and talking alongside Jesus
charged with sharing
the good news of Christ
who chooses us.
