Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed. Mark 6:56
In CNBC’s Titans, George Foreman’s story on how a boxer became a successful entrepreneur was essayed good for the eyes and ears. From the top of the ring, the man was on the top of the world. It all started with the grill.
Yes, the George Foreman grill. It let goes the fat. It gives you healthy food. It has his name. Seems to have his personal touch. But it only carried his name for the grill to sell. It was not created by him. The created doesn’t match the creator.
Genesis tells us God created us and this large universe. He created the sky, the sun, the moon and the planets and the stars. He created the animals, the birds, the four legged ones, and the fishes. The trees and the plants, he made. It has his personal touch. It has his signature all around us.
Mark tells about the opposite way. The created touching the Creator. Man touching God. Specifically, sick men and women getting their hands on the cloak of Jesus, the Lord.
You got to be ready for this.
There is personal connection between the Creator and the created. Why?
Both long for each others touch. There is a signature within which thirst for the presence and the touch of each other. God can reach us and touch us. And we can reach out and touch our God.
There’s a match between the Creator and the created. That’s what you call personal touch.
