Putting God's Word into Practice…

Luke 4:31-44 ~ Personal Touch

on March 21, 2012

I want to focus on the character of Jesus Christ.  All the love languages belong to Him, but here we see quality time and personal touch elevated.  

Verses 40-42.  Now when the sun was setting all those who had any who were sick with various diseases brought them to him, and He laid His hands on every one of them and healed them. And demons also came out of many, crying, “You are the Son of God!” But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that He was the Christ.  And when it was day, he departed and went into a desolate place.  And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them…

Jesus is all-powerful.  He could have said one prayer of healing over the masses, but instead, He took each person individually and put His hands on them and healed them.  And he did this all night!  When morning came, he tried to get a little break, but the people were so hungry for His personal touch and power that they wouldn’t leave Him alone. 

Lord, let me serve like that–selfless and personal.
