“Wherever He entered, into villages, cities, or the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment.
And as many as touched Him were made well.” Mark 6:56
We live in a day and age where groups are trying to divide us as a nation. They are using race, religion, and ideology to strip away the fabric of our society. Beloved, in times like these we need to look at the Savior.
Wherever Jesus went He was the same. He was always ministering to people; seeking to help people. As news of Jesus and the miracles that He did traveled, people began to bring the sick into the open market places, hoping for Jesus to heal them.
This is noteworthy for several reasons. First sick people were considered “unclean” and discouraged from any contact with the public. Second, the marketplace was open to all people, not just Jews. Third, they were encouraging them to humble themselves and touch the hem of Jesus ’garment like a beggar.
Beloved, we see in this vivid picture that Jesus was the only source of hope for EVERYONE. It doesn’t matter what color your skin is, nor how much money you have, nor what family you are from, Jesus is for everyone. “And as many as touched Him were made well.” Oh, they we might touch Jesus today.
