If I just touch His clothes, I will be healed

A High Hope

She thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed”. Mark 5:28

The Gospel of Mark tells the story of a woman who suffered from a bleeding disorder for many years. She was among a crowd following Jesus and believed, “If I can reach him—just touch his clothes—I’ll be healed.”

A risky decision, don’t you think? To touch Jesus she’ll have to touch the people. If one of them recognizes her—hello rebuke, good-bye cure! But what choice does she have?

She has no money, no clout, no solutions. All she has is a crazy hunch that Jesus can help and a high hope that he will!

Maybe that’s all you have—a crazy hunch that Jesus can help and a high hope. You have nothing to give. But you’re hurting. And all you have to offer him is your hurt!

Faith is the belief that God is real and that God is good. There was no guarantee for the woman. She hoped he’d respond. She longed for it—but she didn’t know if he would.

All she knew was that he was there and that he was good.

That’s faith!
