13 Jun Matthew 9:18-21

18 While He was saying these things to them, a synagogue official came and bowed down before Him, and said, “My daughter has just died; but come and lay Your hand on her, and she will live.” 19 Jesus got up and began to follow him, and so did His disciples.

20 And a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years, came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak; 21 for she was saying to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will get well.”

Matthew’s account of Jesus’ ministry is quickly moving from scene to scene and life to life. This scene has a synagogue official and a suffering woman both coming to Jesus for help. What were the two people seeking from Jesus? What did they believe about Jesus’ touch? Are you pursuing Jesus and trusting in His healing touch?
