A Touch and a Word

Re:Verse passage – Matthew 8:14-17 (day two)

He touched her hand…vs. 15a …and He cast out the spirits with a word. 16b

With a touch and a word Jesus made a difference. We may not have Jesus healing abilities, but we surely have the ability to spend time with someone who is in need of comfort. Surely we have a word of kindness for one experiencing grief, loss, or pain. Jesus spent much of his ministry teaching us to identify our neighbors. He doesn’t ask us to cure cancer. He asks as to show love as we have been loved. To show mercy as we have been shown mercy. Sometimes the path to complete restoration can begin with a touch and a word.

  1. Great post. Love is an essential ingredient in everything we do and is the best medicine. It is a basic and psychological need of every human being. Without it, humans cannot survive. Increase the dose of this essential ingredient to those who are in need of having more.
