More Than a Touch!

“When Jesus Christ was physically here, over half of his teachings were less than a single verse of Scripture because he understood the learning process of the human mind in great detail. Yet within those short verses, a world of truth and understanding can be found. For instance: remember when Jesus touched the man with leprosy (Luke 5:12-13)? On first glance we may suspect that Jesus had a magic finger; however, the word touched meant that Jesus embraced this man with a hug (lovingly)! Can you now picture Jesus walking up to this man whose body was literally falling apart and holding him in his arms as the leprosy completely subsided? WOW, this was much more than a touching moment, not only for the leper, but also for the masses who were watching this demonstration of the love of God that Jesus was displaying. Jesus’ loving embrace completely set the leper free! This indeed is a wonderful study in God’s healing Word, yet it is only a fragment of Scripture, for with byte-sized morsels of the living bread of life God literally teaches His children. From time to time in our own lives as we look into the Scriptures we also can spiritually feel the eternal embrace that comes from our heavenly Father, and our resurrected Savior, Christ Jesus!” ~LMJ~
