Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
Matthew 8:9 For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me: and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it.
13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.
Can God heal without so much as touching a person? Of course He can and yet as Christ He choose to touch those in need so that they may know that through Him they are healed.
Psalms 103:3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Image the touch of God. For all the ages those that prayed for health and never felt His touch, but only the few were touched by His hand. What an amazing gift to know God with an intimacy of something so common as a touch, yet infused with the pure power of love. What can not be healed by His love? What can not be made pure by His blessings? What can not be made whole with His truth? What can not be manifest through faith?
God may not make Himself known in your life physically but He did make His example known, to love each other with more than compassion but with the touch we all need so much. The love of a touch is the power to revive the soul. A hug, a hand on the shoulder or a gentle kiss on the brow. What power is in the laying on of hands? Why do those that feel not this intimacy are those that suffer most? In the touch is the power of His love for we all are as one to those that can see beyond appearances.
John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
So love each other and give them affirmation that they are validated and worthy of love and to those of bravery greet each other with the a holy kiss.
1 Corinthians 16:20 All the brethren greet you. Greet ye one another with an holy kiss.
2 Corinthians 13:12 Greet one another with an holy kiss.
1 Thessalonians 5:26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
1 Peter 5:14 Greet ye one another with a kiss of charity. Peace be with you all that are in Christ Jesus. Amen.
