Jesus' Healing Power

Posted on

Jesus was quite popular. In today's Gospel reading from Mark 6, we see that as soon as people recognized Jesus, they ran to get their sick friends and relatives to bring them to Him for healing.

There was great faith. "They laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed." They believed in the healing power of Jesus. So much so that they knew they didn't need a long prayer or even for Jesus to touch them. 

Jesus healed them all. He always does, always will. The healing we seek may not take the form of what we think it should. But Jesus always heals - when we come to Him in faith and ask for the perfect healing that only He can provide. Have faith and ask for your healing today.

Father, we come to you in the name of Jesus, in faith, and ask for our healing. May we accept and recognize your perfect healing in our lives. Amen.
