When they had crossed over, they landed at Gennesaret and anchored there. As soon as they got out of the boat, people recognized Jesus. They ran throughout that whole region and carried the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. And wherever he went—into villages, towns or countryside—they placed the sick in the marketplaces. They begged him to let them touch even the edge of his cloak, and all who touched it were healed.
What an amazing tale of faith, all these people knowing that if they just touched Jesus then they would be healed.
Do we have that same faith today?
Do we believe that Jesus can heal us from our pain and sickness?
Do we share the hope of healing that we know in our lives?
If not, why not?
Jesus we rejoice in your healing gifts and thank you for their eternal provision. We ask to be given the courage to share this miracle with others. Amen.
