Having Faith Must Result in Enjoying the Experience

“Jesus, perceiving in himself that the power proceeding from him had gone forth . . . said, Who touched my garments?” Mark 5:30

In this story we are told that many thronged about the Lord Jesus but only one touched him. This woman came up behind him in the crowd saying, “If I touch but his garments, I shall be made whole.” She had faith and experience followed, for “she felt in her body that she was healed.” And our Lord too felt the touch, and of course knew all that had transpired.

There was no change in the many who thronged around him. It was solely the one who touched him who was instantly changed. It is useless therefore merely to rub shoulders with the Lord. All too many today acquaint themselves with the externalities of Jesus of Nazareth without touching the Son of God as she did. They stay in the outside world of thronging and never risk into the inner world of touching. Do you see the difference? Merely to throng him is of no avail. Reach out the trusting hand to touch him, and diseases are healed and problems solved.
