Jesus Heals in Response to Faith
40On the other side of the lake the crowds welcomed Jesus, because they had been waiting for him. 41Then a man named Jairus, a leader of the local synagogue, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come home with him. 42His only daughter,f who was about twelve years old, was dying.
As Jesus went with him, he was surrounded by the crowds. 43A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding,g and she could find no cure. 44Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped.
45“Who touched me?” Jesus asked.
Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.”
46But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” 47When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees in front of him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed.48“Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
The woman believed, she touched Jesus, and was healed. I wonder how many problems in my life would be healed if I just believed, and touched Jesus? How many problems others have would be healed if I shared my belief and left Jesus use me to touch them?
Holy Spirit, be so alive in me that Jesus touches all my problems and all those whom I touch are truly touched by Jesus.
