Jesus touch simply means different things to different people and different things at different times in a person's life. The important thing to remember is that where the need is great, then Jesus is there to touch. What is needed is the faith of the leper, of the blind and dumb man and the many others who were humble enough to admit that they were in need, and recognized that Jesus was the only one who could satisfy that need. Jesus touch was the healing touch to so many who came into contact with Him, healing both of body and of mind, of spirit and soul. Jesus did a lot of healing to those who had faith in Him, for instance the miraculous restoration of sight or hearing, or the curing of leprosy. He healed every part of our lives, both physically and spiritually. To many, the healing comes, as broken lives are made whole again; to some the healing is a very physical release from suffering; to others it is an inner healing or a restoration of the spiritual bond between creator and creation ( a being made right again).
Jesus Touching examples
The cleansing touch. The story of the leper being healed by Jesus is one of the most well known passages within Mark's gospel that talks about Jesus touch, made more memorable by the poor leper who just couldn't stop talking about his cure, despite Jesus having told him to keep the news as low key as possible. In similar story in Matthew's gospel, a leper says to Jesus 'Lord, if you are willing, you can make me clean.' Jesus reaches out, touches the man, and says 'I am willing. Be clean!'The term leprosy is used in the bible to cover a multitude of skin complaints, from the totally disfiguring real leprosy to ringworm or psoriasis. All these complaints labeled a person as unclean and an outsider, where the sufferer was effectively banished, condemned to live outside the community, bare-headed and in tattered clothes. They were also diseases that were considered to have their origins with Satan, that the person concerned had been literally cursed by being struck down by the disease. If a leper were ever cured he had to go through the most complicated ceremony of cleansing and restoration, which is described in the book of Leviticus 14:2-3. Jesus touch is the illuminating touch. Matthew 9: 28 'When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them 'Do you believe that I am able to do this?' 'Yes, Lord.' they replied. Then he touched their eyes and said. 'According to your faith will it be done to you;' and their sight was restored. Faith is a marvelous thing, because God reveals his glory to us in a measure that we can cope with. For those whose faith is still weak, Jesus brings enough light into lives that they can understand, feed on and grow. To those whose faith is stronger, he reveals more of himself; again so that they might grow even more. That’s the wonderful thing about Jesus. Knowing him is a continuous journey through life; not a once in a lifetime explosion of light, but a succession of experiences and touches in our lives, where we suddenly realize that we are in the presence of our Savior.Liberating touch that Jesus brought. In Mark 7:31-35 we can read of the deaf and dumb man. Jesus put his fingers into the man's ears. Then he spat and touched the man's tongue, the man's ears were opened, his tongue was loosened and he began to speak plainly. Through Jesus touch God will make you a priest in that office you dwell in. Mordeccai a man of God who used to be a gate man was raised to a high rank, his fame spread throughout all the provinces; Mordecai became greater and greater in a way that his working mate could not imagine Esther 6:10-12.
