This close. Jesus comes close to two people in this week’s gospel reading. One is a woman who has been sick and an outcast for 12 years, the other is a 12 year old girl who has died. Both are healed.
It’s really not a surprise because this is what Jesus does. He usurps the status quo and comes close to those who are shunned by society. This causes me to pause and wonder if I am willing to do that? Are you? Are you willing to get close to people who are rejected by society?
Be encouraged as you hear the rest of the message here.
