Love Like Jesus - Week 1 - "A Personal Encounter"
Passage: Mark 5:25–5:34
Text: Mark 5:25-34
And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years.
She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. (NIV)
When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” (NIV)
Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (NIV)
When she heard about Jesus… (NIV)
For he had healed many, so that those with diseases were pushing forward to touch him. (NIV)
Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. (NIV)
But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. (NIV)
Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. (NIV)
Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering. (NIV)
