This week we’re exploring Jesus’ invitation to come to him – just as you are. It’s seriously good stuff!
Is there something in your life you feel would make God want to keep his distance from you? Maybe you’ve been rejected by someone, or there’s something that makes you feel kinda dirty…
There was a woman in Jesus’ time whose bleeding problem made her untouchable for religious reasons. She hears that Jesus is in town and desperately sneaks a quick touch of Jesus’ coat.
Jesus is awesome. Instead of stepping away he says this:
‘Daughter, you took a risk of faith, and now you’re healed and whole. Live well, live blessed! Be healed.’
(Read the story in Mark 5v21-34 here: http://bit.ly/1nEXXNx )
Do you need to take a risk of faith and approach Jesus with the thing that makes you feel dirty?
