As we walk daily in our faith and face issues in our lives, we must always remember that the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, protect, strengthen and call you as His child.

40 A man with leprosy[a] came to him and begged him on his knees, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.”
