“Jesus’s Healing Touch”
BIBLE READING: Mark 5
In Mark chapter 5 Jesus has sailed to the other side of the sea and a great crowd has gathered to see his power. After Jesus has healed a demon-possessed man the crowd grew even larger. As he was making his way through the crowd this is when the woman with the issue of blood reached out and touched Jesus. Her healing and the raising of Jairus’s daughter both were reliant on the faith these people had in Jesus’s power.
The power of Jesus’s touch is even greater now. The power of Jesus’s cleansing touch at baptism gives us power over sickness and death because it gives us eternal life. True, it would be awesome to witness the miracles that Jesus did while on Earth, we all witness the most powerful feat of all – overcoming sin. There is true power in that.
