FAITH IS REWARDED     Faith Is Rewarded

Memory Verse: Matthew 9:21

Life Application: Our faith is rewarded.

Bible Text: Matthew 9:18-26

While on His way to Jairus’ house, Jesus was surrounded by many people. There were so many people that they were bumping into each other.  Some were even trying to reach out to touch Jesus as He made His way through the crowd.

Matthew 9:18-20  NKJV     “While He spoke these things to them, behold, a ruler came and worshiped Him, saying, “My daughter has just died, but come and lay Your hand on her and she will live.” So Jesus arose and followed him, and so did His disciples. And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment.”

      There was a woman who was very, very sick. While at home she thought about the things that she had heard about Jesus. She believed that Jesus could make her well. She left her house and began to look for Jesus.

Matthew 9:21  NKJV     “For she said to herself, “If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well.”

      It didn’t take her long to find Him because of the large crowd of people, however it was so hard for her to even get close to Jesus, with all the pushing and shoving going on. But the woman was determined to get to Jesus, even if she could only get close enough to touch the back of His clothes. She truly believed in her heart that she only had to touch the hem of His garment and she would be made well.

The woman did what she set out to do – she reach through the crowd and touched Jesus. When she did Jesus immediately stopped. He had felt healing power leave His body and He knew that someone had been healed.

Matthew 9:22  NKJV     “But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, “Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And the woman was made well from that hour.”

      After Jesus found out who had touched Him, He told the woman that it was her faith that had made her well!
