Welcome to my blog: I intend to share heartfelt writing about anything that comes to mind.
|For the record, if I have other thoughts besides today’s prompts, I will place them above or below this blog section for the day.
Taking Up The Cross
Mark 5:29-34 tells us the story of a woman who had an irregularity ion her menstrual cycle whom Jesus healed. What is significant about the fact that she touched Him besides the faith it took to do so?
This one is a bit of a challenge for me. I honestly never gave it much thought, but I went to read verses 25-34 of Mark chapter 5. Here are my thoughts:
1. Besides faith, I see hope in Christ. V.28
2. I see possibly consideration seeing how busy Jesus was and how many people already surrounded him. .v. 27
3. I see fear, worship, and honesty. V.33
4. I see desperation. V.26
Conclusion: It took boldness in the hope that only Jesus himself provides. Her faith was shown through her actions. Jesus took the time for her in the middle of a busy crowd. Jesus will not ignore those who truly make a heartfelt effort to be close to him. If you want to be near Jesus, press into him if only to touch his garments.
