And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. Mark 5:25-27
What does true faith look like? What does true faith feel like? How about this woman, who has been suffering for 12 years with a medical condition. She went to see many doctors, but nobody could cure her. One day she heard Jesus was coming through town, and she knew if she could just touch his garment, she would be healed!
This woman had been beaten down, she had every reason to give up, however she had faith in Jesus, she believed he is the Christ, she knew he was the only one who could save her. Do you have this faith in Jesus? Are you reaching out and seeking him?
Just one touch of the Savior and she was cured! It sounds too simple, it sounds impossible. But then you start to realize who Jesus is, the Son of God, the Great I AM, the Good Shepherd who came to bring life to his sheep
For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? Mark 5:28-30
She kept saying “If I could just reach the Savior, then i would be healed” this is what we should all be saying daily. If we just keep reaching out to Jesus, you will be saved. Keep focused on Christ and not of this world. There is only one who can set you free!
Notice when she touched his garment, Jesus knew immediately and asked “Who touched me” Jesus hears your prayers, Jesus knows your pain, and Jesus doesn’t just want us to reach for him but to get to know him. A personal Savior from Heaven.
And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. Mark 5:31-33
Even though Jesus was surrounded by people, he searched for the one woman who was seeking him. Don’t think that you’re too insignificant for Christ, remember he left the 99 to find the one lost sheep!
The woman bowed before The Lord and begged for mercy. She knew who he is , the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, she laid her life at the Savior’s feet
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. Mark 5:34
Notice Jesus’ response “Daughter, your faith made you well” He addressed her as a child of God, and Christ healed her because of her faith. Just one touch of the Savior, will save your life, keep seeking Jesus Amen
