36And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment: and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.
36 Verse 36. That they might only touch the hem of his garment]
What mighty influence must the grace and Spirit of Christ have in
the soul, when even the border or hem of his garment produced such
wonders in the bodies of those who touched it! Here is a man who
has turned from sin to God through Christ, and the healing hand of
Jesus is laid upon him. Then, no wonder that he knows and feels
his sins forgiven, his soul purified, and his heart filled with
the fulness of his Maker. Lord, increase our faith! and we shall
see greater manifestations of thy power and glory! Amen.
