One Sabbath day as Jesus was teaching in a synagogue, He saw a woman who had been crippled by an evil spirit. She had been bent double for eighteen years and was unable to stand up straight. When Jesus saw her, He called her over and said, “Dear woman, you are healed of your sickness!” Then He touched her, and instantly she could stand straight. How she praised God! – Luke 13:10-13 (NIV)
Jesus always had time to really see people. Wherever He was, whatever He was doing, He could see the needs of others – and nothing could keep Him from helping them; not laws, not customs, not disease, not evil. He knows just how to touch that secret place deep within us that has us doubled over in pain, fear, confusion, doubt – and restore us to health, peace, and life abundant. Can you see Him? He sees you!
