Series: We Are TPCC | Week 2: Hungry
Mark 2:1“When Jesus returned to Capernaum several days later, the news spread quickly that He was back home.”
Jesus has just returned home to Capernaum from another small village where He healed a leper (someone with a skin disease). Before you move on, it’s important to think about the significance of that healing. This is the first recorded instance of a leper being healed in hundreds of years. Jesus not only fulfilled prophecy regarding the Messiah when He healed the leper, He also showed His hunger to cross conventional boundaries to bring good news. Lepers were outcasts but Jesus came to seek and save those far from Him, regardless of their circumstances.

2. What are some boundaries you need to cross in your everyday life to connect with those far from Jesus? Come up with a plan today to start a conversation with someone you see on a regular basis but have never taken the time to get to know.
