Reaching for Jesus

Sermon - 5/10/09
Dr. Sharon Watkins
First Christian Church, Eugene, Oregon

Luke 8:42b-48

[Dr. Sharon Watkins, General Minister and President of the Disciples of Christ (Christian Church) in America & Canada, was a guest preacher on May 10th.  Her full sermon can be seen in two parts on YouTube]:

As he went, the crowds pressed in on him. 43Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years; and though she had spent all she had on physicians,* no one could cure her. 44She came up behind him and touched the fringe of his clothes, and immediately her hemorrhage stopped. 45Then Jesus asked, ‘Who touched me?’ When all denied it, Peter* said, ‘Master, the crowds surround you and press in on you.’ 46But Jesus said, ‘Someone touched me; for I noticed that power had gone out from me.’ 47When the woman saw that she could not remain hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before him, she declared in the presence of all the people why she had touched him, and how she had been immediately healed. 48He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.’
