My son was two when we found out that his dad had AIDS. We were devastated at the news. We had suspected a problem when he couldn’t get rid of an infection, so we went together, to another town, and we both had the test. It was anguishing waiting, but the news was worse. It was a torturous disease, and he passed away three years later. There was good news in this, because he turned his life over to Jesus, he now resides with him in heaven. There was also a miracle involved; my son and I were spared. There was no caution taken before we found out; we lived a normal life. There was one point where we were in the car together when he was very sick, and he began to have a seizure, and blood was spewing from his mouth! Needless to say, I am overwhelmingly grateful to God for sparing me and my son, and I have never forgotten, and have praised him for this miracle for more than twenty five years!
If God finds it in his heart to spare your life or heal you of an infirmity, it is your duty to make an offering. Jesus healed a leper, and required that he go and make an offering for his cleansing as required by the law of Moses. You, however, must offer God praise and gratitude as payment. Hasn’t he done a miracle in you by cleansing you of all unrighteousness? Go, and pay tribute to God for his mercy by making him an offering of praise, and never let your lips stop glorifying him.
And he charged him to tell no one, but “go and show yourself to the priest, and make an offering for your cleansing, as Moses commanded, for a proof to them.” Luke 5:14
