Reach Out! Touch the Hem of His Garment! — 2 Comments

  1. Yes Geraldine, a very important lesson for others on the healing that Jesus did at that time when the woman was physically able to reach out and touch the hem of his garment. This was a very important sign for all of us but especially for women and so many others need to know that this can also be possible in our present time through reaching out in Faith and trust in the power of the risen Christ Jesus.
    It was very nice to read your post and I would just like to say the very best wishes for you and the work that you do!

    Thomas, a believer!

  2. Luke 18:1-14
    Amplified Bible (AMP)
    18 Also [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to pray and not to [a]turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up).
    2 He said, In a certain city there was a judge who neither reverenced and feared God nor respected or considered man.
    3 And there was a widow in that city who kept coming to him and saying, Protect and defend and give me justice against my adversary.
    4 And for a time he would not; but later he said to himself, Though I have neither reverence or fear for God nor respect or consideration for man,
    5 Yet because this widow continues to bother me, I will defend and protect and avenge her, lest she give me [b]intolerable annoyance and wear me out by her continual coming or [c]at the last she come and rail on me or [d]assault me or [e]strangle me.
    6 Then the Lord said, Listen to what the unjust judge says!
    7 And will not [our just] God defend and protect and avenge His elect (His chosen ones), who cry to Him day and night? Will He [f]defer them and [g]delay help on their behalf?
    8 I tell you, He will defend and protect and avenge them speedily. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [[h]persistence in] faith on the earth?
    9 He also told this parable to some people who trusted in themselves and were confident that they were righteous [that they were upright and in right standing with God] and scorned and made nothing of all the rest of men:
    10 Two men went up into the temple [[i]enclosure] to pray, the one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
    11 The Pharisee [j]took his stand ostentatiously and began to pray thus before and with himself: God, I thank You that I am not like the rest of men—extortioners (robbers), swindlers [unrighteous in heart and life], adulterers—or even like this tax collector here.
    12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I gain.
    13 But the tax collector, [merely] standing at a distance, would not even lift up his eyes to heaven, but kept striking his breast, saying, O God, be favorable (be gracious, be merciful) to me, the [k]especially wicked sinner that I am!
    14 I tell you, this man went down to his home justified (forgiven and made upright and in right standing with God), rather than the other man; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but he who humbles himself will be exalted.
