My favorite story from the bible is pictured here in the photo I took while in Magdala, Israel.
The story is found in Mark:25-29 (ESV)
25 And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, 26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” 29 And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease.
This poor woman knew in her heart of hearts, that if she could only touch the hem of His garment, she would be healed.
So she threw away her fear, and bravely pushed her way through to Him.
Can you image how hard that had to be for her in her weakened state?
Can you imagine how WE would be,
if we simply pushed our way through, to touch the hem of His garment?
Until next time …
