You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“But His disciples said to Him, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’” - Mark 5:31

In Mark 5 we read about a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve long years. She was suffering for twelve years. No physicians could help and heal her. She had spent all that she had hoping that she will receive healing. Her condition grew worse. During that time, she heard about Jesus Christ. She went behind Him and touched His garment and immediately her bleeding stopped. She felt that she was healed of the affliction. Her suffering came to an end. 

Jesus Christ turned around and asked, “Who touched Me?” The disciples replied to Him saying, “You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, ‘Who touched Me?’”

On that day when that particular woman got healed, many people were thronging Jesus. Multitude were thronging Jesus but yet only one could touch Jesus and receive blessing from Him. 

Multitudes were thronging and pressing Jesus but yet that particular woman touched Jesus in such a way that Jesus Christ Himself felt that power had gone out of Him. 

Those multitudes didn’t receive any blessing but that particular woman got healed and received blessing because she touched God. 

Are you the one who just throng Jesus Christ and end up without receiving any blessing or are you the one who touch God and receive His blessing? You have to think and analyse. 

Simply by saying that I am a Christian you can’t receive any blessing. You have to touch God through your prayer, tears and deeds. 

Learn to touch God’s heart so that His power will flow into your life and you will receive what you long for. 

Another important character of that woman is told in Mark 5:28, “For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.”

She had a doubt whether she could touch the garment of Jesus Christ but she had a sure faith that she will be made well if she touch His clothes. Though she had doubt in the process of touching His clothes she had no doubt in receiving a healing. She had a tremendous faith upon Jesus Christ. 

That’s the reason Jesus said to her in Mark 5:34, “...“Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction.”
She had faith and with her faith she touched God’s heart and received the blessing that she longed for so many years.

My dear young friends, have faith upon Jesus Christ. Continue to pray and walk according to His will. You will see God’s power flowing into your life. You will receive God’s blessing in abundance.
