The Hem of His Garment

“Just then a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak. She said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be healed.” Jesus turned and saw her. “Take heart, daughter,” he said, “your faith has healed you.” And the woman was healed at that moment.”

Matthew 9:20-22

One of the coolest things about Jesus is that He’s such a healing presence. As He is on His way to raise someone from the dead, a woman has had a bleeding disease for ten years. She thinks that if I could just touch Him I’ll be healed. She just barely touches the hem of His garment and she’s healed. Jesus is such a healer. He heals people on accident. Don’t you think it was an accident? Of course, it was. He turns around and He goes who touched me? And then, of course, His disciples replied, “Jesus, everybody’s touching you.” Then He responds, “No, no, no, no, no, someone touched me with faith and I felt power go out of me into her.” Jesus is healing. Jesus is Heaven! To touch Jesus is to touch heaven. To be with Him is to be in Heaven, alive today.
