Not Lost In The Crowd

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
Mark 5:31

God never loses the individual in the crowd. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God”-there is the multitude-but God breaks it down into individuals-“there is none righteous, no, not one.” The sinners cannot hide in the crowd.

But there is another side: “God so loved the world”-there is the multitude-“that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever”-there is the individual-“believeth on him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Salvation is for every sinner in the crowd.

The disciples in our text saw the crowd; Jesus saw one lone woman. The multitude thronged Him; the woman touched Him. The crowds at church on Sunday morning throng Him, but few ever touch Him. God deals with people one at a time. “Him that cometh…If any man….Whosoever will” We are saved, Spirit-filled, called, directed, one at a time.

Be sure you press through the throng and touch Him. “For as many as touched (not thronged) him were made perfectly whole.”
