Reaching Out

Reaching Out

Passage: Matthew 9:18-34

Speaker: Drew Shofner

Series: Jesus On The Road

Category: Faith

Keywords: faith, fear, gospel story, healing, reaching out, touch of jesus, touch of god

Your story has touched the heart of God so deeply that he reaches out to you—to heal you and change you. Our initial reaction to God’s touch is to recoil. Maybe because we are ignorant, or arrogant, hopeless, or full of fear. Today is the day to lean in to God because he wants to redeem you and heal you with the touch of Jesus. So instead of backing away, change your perspective and reach back to God’s hand. When you look for satisfaction in something besides Jesus, it only darkens your life and makes it worse. It’s time to choose a new reality. A reality that lives in the presence of Jesus, feeling the touch of God, and seeing the great things that he will do as a result of just a little bit of faith.
