Lesson 21

And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 

For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 

And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing.

But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth.

And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. (Mark 5:25-34.)

Points to Ponder:

  1. How did this woman show her faith in Jesus Christ?
  2. Why do you think faith must precede the miracle?
  3. Why are the miracles that Jesus performed during His mortal life important to you?
  4. How do you know that He continues to perform miracles today?

One thought on “Lesson 21

  1. I believe the miracles going on are often subtle and personal. Without looking for Gods signature in our lives He gets overlooked. I also think living in a world afraid to admit faith in God, miracles go unappreciated by the masses. That said, I think our collective lives are more full of miracles both grand and known only to the individual than even those looking for Gods signature know.
    This gives me hope, reason to rejoice and further desire to serve my fellow mankind in a effort to sing His praises through my works.
