“She was healed immediately”. Luke 8 v47
Beloved, the Saviour’s miracles is one of the most touching and teaching of Scriptures. Let us not be a stranger to the generosity of Jesus’ character. His character is to heal, to restore, to forgive and to love unconditionally.
Yes, “she was healed immediately”. After she had obtained the cure, she rejoiced with trembling; glad was she that the divine virtue has done a marvellous healing in her, but yet she also did feared that CHRIST might retract the blessing, and put a negative upon the grant of His grace; little did she comprehend the fullness of the love of Christ.
We have not so clear a view of Christ as we could wish; we know not the heights and depths of His love; but we know of a surety that He is too good to withdraw any gift which He has given to us.
But here is the marvel of it all: her faith saved her, and saved her at once. There was no tedious delay – faith’s miracle was instantaneous. If we have faith as a grain of mustard seed, salvation is our present and eternal possession. If in the list of the Lord’s children we are written as the feeblest of God’s family, yet, being heirs through faith, no power, human or devilish, can eject us from salvation.
If we dare not lean our heads upon His (Christ’s) bosom, yet if we can venture in the press behind Him, and touch the hem of His garment, we are made whole.
Be encouraged son/daughter of Zion! Your faith has saved you; go in peace. “Being justified by faith, we have peace with God”. Amen.
JESUS LOVES YOU
