Touching Jesus

The Bible tells us, " ... that a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of [the] garment [of Jesus]; for she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.""(Matthew 9:2021) It was the knowledge that she wasn't well that made her press in to touch the Savior. The reason sinners don't see their need for the grace of God in Christ is that they don't see that they are not well. They are diseased, and deceived by the disease of and the deceitfulness of sin. John MacArthur said, "God's grace cannot be faithfully preached to unbelievers until the Law is preached, and man's corrupt nature is exposed. It is impossible for a person to fully realize his need for God's grace until he sees how terribly he has failed the standards of God's Law." There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
