Today is a reflection day.
A woman with an incurable condition – chronic bleeding – sought Jesus in the midst of a crowd. She touched the fringe of his robe, apparently unseen. Jesus immediately asks who touched Him, saying:
“Someone touched me, for I perceive that power has gone out from me.” (Luke 8:46).
Those who respond to Jesus by reaching out to touch Him receive power. In her case it was healing power. For all of us, it is the power of new life, resurrection life, the power of The Holy Spirit to know truth and to serve Him so as to accomplish great and marvelous things for His Kingdom.
How about us? Do we live like powerful people? If we are in Christ Jesus, we have all the power we need for this day and every day.
in Him, Mike
