What can we learn from a destitute woman whose faith was more than a “could” kind of faith, but a “would” kind of faith? Bro. Jeff shares the account of a woman who came with a problem and left with peace.
Luke 8:42-48 (KJV)
42 For he had one only daughter, about twelve years of age, and she lay a dying. But as he went the people thronged him.
43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
47 And when the woman saw that she was not hid, she came trembling, and falling down before him, she declared unto him before all the people for what cause she had touched him, and how she was healed immediately.
48 And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.
21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.
17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:
