‘…and all who touched it were healed.’
Mark 6: 53-56
The people in the land of Gennesaret didn’t have social media accounts, the internet or mobile phones. Actually, they didn’t have access to any of the technology we live with today and literally depend on to get by. And yet, the Gospel tells us that as soon as Jesus and His disciples reached land the people there were able to recognise Him.
With this recognition they desperately went ahead and pulled their sick out to be healed by Him. Scripture goes on to tell us that hey begged Him to let them touch the fringe of his cloak and and all who touched it were healed.
Jesus, help me to recognise you are there with the same healing power the people of Gennesaret experienced. Today I bring to you myself, my family and my friends and beg you ‘leh we touch de fringe of yuh cloak Oh Lord,’ so we might receive your ever-living healing power.
