Pour Me Out

EGO stands for: Edge God Out

Mark 1:45

The man went away and began to publicize the whole matter. He spread the report abroad so that it was impossible for Jesus to enter a town openly. He remained outside in deserted places, and people kept coming to him from everywhere.

In today’s scripture, a man described as a “leper” approached Jesus and begged to be made “clean.”

Jesus healed him on the spotno questions asked.

The man did not have to prove he was somehow worthy.

He didn’t have to say he’d do something in the future or adhere to any rules or regulations.

There was no test.

There was no judgment.

There was only a loving response to a need.

And there was no ego involved.

For Jesus, it was never about him.

He didn’t want notoriety or to be a celebrity.

It was all about healing and restoring others…bringing them wholeness. 

Jesus emptied himself.

We are called to do the same.
