In a crowd? Want to get people's attention?

Touch the hem of His garment, they will all take notice.

Luke 8:42-48
As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him.


43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her.

44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

45 "Who touched me?" Jesus asked.
When they all denied it, Peter said, "Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you."


46 But Jesus said, "Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me."

47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed.

48 Then he said to her, "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace."
NIV

Hope your Christmas was wonderful!

I love the humanity Jesus displays in this scene. "I know that power has gone out from me." Fully God to have the power to heal her, but fully man in that His omnipotence was limited while He was in human form.

Amazing to me that He would even take on human form at all.

My absolute fave story! I was that woman 8 years ago, and He healed me as only He can!

Praise Him!

One of my favorite stories..Her faith and despiration for a healing made her "press thru" the crowd..Sometimes we need to press thru the crowd ourselves...Great posting Sue. Hope you had a great Christmas:0)

Great post. I like the song Touch them hem of his garment and I really love when Nicole C. Mullen performs it. It always brings tears to my eyes.
