An Undiscerning Spirit (4)

September 06, 2013

“And You say, ‘Who touched Me?’” Lk 8:45 NKJV

One day a chronically ill woman who had hemorrhaged for twelve years pushed her way through the crowd and touched the hem of Jesus’ garment. And immediately she was healed. “Jesus said, ‘Who touched Me?’ When all denied it, Peter and those with him said, ‘Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’ But Jesus said, ‘Somebody touched Me, for I perceived power going out from Me.’ Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all…how she was healed immediately. And He said to her, ‘Daughter, be of good cheer; your faith has made you well. Go in peace’” (vv. 45-48 NKJV).

What’s at work in this story? An undiscerning spirit. Observe Peter’s words, “Master, the multitudes throng and press You, and You say, ’Who touched Me?’” Understand this: Jesus can tell the difference between the indiscriminate touch of the crowd, and a touch of faith. Faith draws on His power and brings results! Notice, this woman touched the “hem” of Jesus’ garment. The last thing a dressmaker does when she makes a garment is to sew up the hem. So the hem represents “the finished work.” The same back that bore the cross which takes away your sins, also bore the stripes which take away your sickness. “And by His stripes we are healed” (Isa 53:5 NKJV). What do you need today? Forgiveness of sins? Healing? Reach out in faith and touch Jesus, and you too will be made whole.
