Who touched me?

In Luke chapter 8, we learn about a special woman:

As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.

“Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

Imagine the situation… there are so many people crowding around Jesus that He is nearly crushed by the throng. He is important; they are curious. However… Jesus’ attention is focused on only one among the many. He searches for the one who sought healing, who believed in Him. He already knows her. He already healed her.

Who are you in this story? Are you merely curious about Jesus or are you seeking Him?

Are you bleeding? Is He the one you much touch? Will you die without His healing power? The answer to all these questions is yes. Put your hope and faith in Jesus and He will also look for you and say, “Who touched me?”
