sick lying on their mats; and wherever he went, to villages, towns or farms, they laid the sick in the marketplace, and begged him
to let them touch just the fringe of his cloak. And all who touched him were cured.
People now begin to flock to Jesus. Each encounter with Him is
a healing encounter for many. And they spread this good news to others
thereby increasing those who want to see the Lord and be healed. Perhaps
the initial good news for these people is the freedom from the oppression of
sickness that Jesus brings. It is an immediate liberating experience. For some
perhaps that is enough. There are those who, after being healed from their
bodily illness begin to follow the Lord. Liberated from physical maladies, they
proceeded to being healed spiritually by listening to the words of the Lord.
