Day by Day with Martin Luther

Read: Daniel 6:1-7:8 2nd Peter 2:10-22

“Her Faith [Jesus] that Heals”

“She said to herself, “If I only touch his garment, I will be made well.”
[Matthew 9:21]

Her faith was so strong that she believed she could obtain help, if only she could touch His garment. She did not deem it necessary to come to Him, and with many words present her complaint, and pray that He would have mercy on her and help her, nor did other pray for her; but she sought only to reach Him and touch Him. She thought, if she could only do this, she would receive help. She neither doubted His power, nor His willingness to help … nor did her faith deceive her, for as soon as she touched the hem of His garment, the flow of blood was stopped. Hence, you may see that faith, which clings to this person of Christ is, namely, a heart that regards Him as Lord and Savior, the Son of God, through whom God reveals Himself and bestows upon us His grace, assuring us that through Him and for His sake, He will hear and help us.
