When Jesus Touches Your Life

In Mark 1:29-45, we witness Jesus grabbing Peter's sick mother in law by the hand and healing her, the whole city of Capernaum gathered together at the door of Peter's home to be healed and touched by Jesus, Jesus getting up early to spend some time alone with God the Father, and Jesus healing a leper by touching Him. These passages give us many wonderful examples of what happens when a person is touched by Jesus.

Mark 1:29-45

29 Now as soon as they had come out of the synagogue, they entered the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John. 30 But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. 31 So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.

32 At evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed. 33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door. 34 Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

35 Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. 36 And Simon and those who were with Him searched for Him. 37 When they found Him, they said to Him, “Everyone is looking for You.”

38 But He said to them, “Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for this purpose I have come forth.”

39 And He was preaching in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and casting out demons.
