Mark 5:31- And His disciples said to Him, "You see the crowd pressing in on You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?'" NASU
This woman had heard about Jesus and believed that if she could just touch Him she would be made well. All she needed was to "simply touch" Him.
So she started out to locate Jesus and "simply touch" Him. She found Jesus and made it happen. She positioned herself to "simply touch" Jesus. When she touched Him she was healed.
Can you remember when you touched Jesus and He healed you? We may not have been unclean physically as this lady but we were unclean spiritually because we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. When Jesus forgave us of our sins it is the same as being touched by Jesus.
I came in contact with Jesus when I was baptized into Him. In my baptism I was symbolically buried with Christ and I also resurrected with Him when I was lifted out of the baptismal waters. I have been touching Him for 48 years and as this woman's life was changed so has my life been changed.
I believe we have been touched by the Lord to touch other people for Him.
If you will share the Word of God with others trust me when I say the Word will be able to do the convicting and converting of a sinner's hard heart. Go ahead and touch some one today. Just remember when the woman touched Jesus she was healed. Make it easy for people to touch Jesus, be a reflector of the true light Jesus Christ.
Think About These:
A person's faith isn't judged by what he says about it, but by what he does about it.
Living without faith is like driving in the fog.
