Jesus Wants to Touch You..NOW!

Jesus Wants to Touch You..NOW!

When the people got wind that He was back, they sent out word through the neighborhood and rounded up all the sick, who asked for permission to touch the edge of His coat. And whoever touched Him was healed.

(Matthew 14:35-36, The Message)

There were instances when people just had to touch Jesus’ coat and they were healed. I know what you are thinking. “How I wish that the coat of Jesus is still here so I can touch it and be healed.” Well, I have good news for you. Jesus is still right there beside you now. All you have to do is touch Him in faith and you will receive your healing! Go ahead!

I especially like the way this passage says “all the sick” were rounded up and brought to Jesus. This sounds like a healing crusade to me. It does not qualify anymore what kind of sickness Jesus healed- just ALL the sick. And all who touched Him were healed!

After Jesus returned, he walked along Lake Galilee and then climbed a mountain and took His place, ready to receive visitors. They came, tons of them, bringing along the paraplegic, the blind, the maimed, the mute—all sorts of people in need—and more or less threw them down at Jesus’ feet to see what He would do with them. He healed them. When the people saw the mutes speaking, the maimed healthy, the paraplegics walking around, the blind looking around, they were astonished and let everyone know that God was blazingly alive among them. (Matthew 15:29-31, The Message)

Everyone knew that God was “blazingly alive among them” when they saw the healing power of Jesus demonstrated. Nothing beats a ministry that demonstrates the power of God to heal. 

This leads me to ask you a question—when was the last time you saw the power of Jesus demonstrated through healing the sick? He so wants to touch sick bodies… even today.
