Matthew 14:36 They begged him just to let them touch his clothes, and everyone who did was healed.
The people following Jesus were desperate to get close to Him. So desperate that merely touching His clothes was life-changing. How many times have I begged Him to draw me closer to Him? How many times do I try to keep Jesus at arm’s distance? After all, it’s much easier to keep Him at that distance. That way I don’t really have to change things in my life. Of course, it also means I’m less likely to experience His power the way these people did.
So…which do I want? Comfort from a distance? Or life-changing, soul-cleansing, healing power that only comes from drawing close to Jesus?
