Mark 5:34. And he said unto
her, Daughter, thy faith hath made
thee whole; go in peace, and be
whole of thy plague. This woman
already had that spiritual instinct
that feels its way to Jesus. Some
thing in the very depth of her
being had told her that He had
the very help she needed, and if
she could but touch Him, her
Faith and need would draw out
and claim it for her healing. The
border of the Rabbi’s robe was
called the phylactery. It was a
fringe chiefly made up of quota
tions from the Word of God. It
would seem that God was intimat
ing to us that the way to touch
Him is through His Word. We can
not see His face; but we can touch
Him by faith and claim His pro
mises, and know that the Promiser
is true. It should be added that this
W()man’s healing was a prelude to
even a much greater blessing.
When she came with trembling lips
and fell at His feet and told Him
all, almost asking forgiveness for
her boldness. It was, with the re
assuring words of the double bles
sing, “Daughter, thy faith hath
made thee whole, go in peace, and
he whole of thy plague.” There is
another place where we read of
the man who was sick of the palsy.
Jesus said, Son, thy sins be for
given thee. When we touch Christ
by faith it brings us into the fam
ily of God. The touch of a king
might make us a royal knight, but
the touch of Jesus makes us Sons
and Daughters of God. To as many
as received Him to them gave He
power to become the Sons of God.
