Jottings – A Deep Sense of Need

Jottings

Regarding Mark 5:25: “Let us mark… how different are the feelings with which people draw near to Christ. We are told in these verses that ‘much people followed’ our Lord, ‘and thronged him.’ But we are only told of one person who ‘came in the press behind,’ and touched Him with faith and was healed.
