The law’s penalties for sins are not surprising. What is surprising is the inherent grace woven into the law. Leprosy was a death sentence. It was irreversible and incurable. That was reality. But God’s law gave specific provisions for those cured from leprosy. God was saying that healing was possible and He was making restoration possible.
We are witnesses to the devastation of sin in the lives of others. We have, regrettably, experienced its consequences in our own lives. But the law never gave up hope that lepers may be made whole again. Therefore, we have hope that every sinner may become righteous again in Christ.
The culture said and acted on their belief: “Salvation is impossible!” But the law was an unyielding reminder: “Redemption is always possible.” And in the Person of Jesus Christ, this redemption is fully realized. By God’s grace and with His healing, people are always eligible to be made clean again.
