Make Contact ~ With Jesus
By Rodney W. Francis
You Can Release Your Faith, and "MAKE CONTACT" WITH JESUS!
Your basic problems are spiritual, and the only way to have and enjoy complete freedom and wholeness, is for you to know how to have a right foundation upon which to build your life. JESUS CHRIST is that right Foundation (God has ordained Him so -1 Corinthians 3:11 ), and Jesus Christ is the Answer to all of your problems - no matter what they may be!
Today you can have "contact" with Jesus; a contact that gives "a perfect soundness (a complete wholeness) in the presence of all" (Acts 3:16 ).
The Bible gives a very good example of a woman touching the Lord Jesus in her time of trouble and sickness. Mark 5:25-34 tells of the woman with the issue of blood — a plague which had caused her to suffer for 12 long years. She suffered many things of many physicians; spent all that she had trying to find an answer and relief — but nothing gave her any relief or healing. In fact she grew worse. At that time she had not heard of Jesus and His power to deliver, and therefore she was without hope. She thought her only hope lay with the physicians. She tried many, but without success. The physicians did their best for her. Oh, how that woman longed to be free of her plague! There she was, suffering worse than ever, with all hope and money gone.
Then one day she heard of JESUS. Someone told her of the Saviour Who could heal her and meet her every need (just like we are telling you now). She listened to the message of hope, and faith was quickened in her heart, just as the Bible declares, that "Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17 ).
She believed! She believed Jesus could heal her - but first she would have to touch His garment — she had to make contact with HIM. She said, "If I can only touch His clothes, I shall be made whole." That woman, as sick as she was, acted on her faith and went to touch JESUS. There were many people in the way (many people will stand in your way, too, and try to prevent you from making contact with Jesus!). With determination in her heart she pressed through. Her need was greater than the opinions of those who tried to stop her. JESUS was now her only hope. She came to Him. Reaching out her hand she touched His garment — "and straight away the fountain (source) of her blood was dried up."
When she made contact with Jesus, her problem was solved. HE NEVER FAILED HER. She knew in her body that she was healed of her plague. For the first time in her life she felt the power of JESUS. For the first time in 12 years she felt better. She had touched the hem of His garment — she had made contact with JESUS! The very moment she made contact with Jesus, her needs were met!
My friend, you can also have your needs met, just as surely as that woman in the Bible. JESUS CHRIST is the same today. He has not changed (Hebrews 13:8 ). He is alive to meet with you the moment you will believe His Word, release your faith that comes from His Word, and determine to make contact with Him.
Do this today, and a new life will open up to you. Yes, a life full of love, joy, peace, health and satisfaction becomes yours because you make contact with the Source of all life, Jesus Christ. May the reality of this message bless your soul.
