If you had a chance to be with someone who consistently does wonderful things, wouldn't you take that chance? I think that's why crowds surrounded Jesus like a cloud wherever he went during his earthly walk. He healed people dramatically from serious illness, delivered them from evil spirits that had captured their minds and even brought back the dead to life. Naturally, if you had a serious problem yourself you would want to get close and touch Jesus or, better yet, receive his touch and his words on your behalf. The same is true today! Jesus walks in our midst in a more inclusive way. Because He is in spirit and not in flesh he is not limited to one geographical spot. He is just as capable now as he was then to heal, deliver and restore. It's interesting that Jesus actually told folks not to tell anyone about miracles after they were performed...maybe he knew that they would do just the opposite and spread the news far and wide. Are you prepared to be amazed? Join the crowd that is following Jesus and then press in close to touch him and to look into his eyes and to bring your particular burden to him.
Mark 7:37 They were completely amazed and said again and again, "Everything he does is wonderful. He even makes the deaf to hear and gives speech to those who cannot speak."
