On any given day you could find Him in places like the home of Simon the leper sharing a meal, or in the streets protecting a prostitute from the outraged attack of religious hypocrites, or walking the roadways in search of those who were lost and shunned by society. They pressed in all around Him. If only they could touch Him. If only they could get His attention. All throughout the land they had heard of the power of His touch and longed to experience that human-divine connection for themselves. The words of Jesus were empowered in the people’s eyes by His actions. He didn’t send the hypocritical message of the religious hierarchy, “Do as I say, not as I do!” — Don Milam

To the abiding rancor of the sanctimonious religious leaders, no
self-preservative fear or religious inhibition prevented this Man from touching
the defiled, as such were religiously defined. Lepers, prostitutes, the blind,
the filthy, the crippled, the poor, and even the dead—He reached out to them
with total compassion and gathered them to Himself. There, within His arms, they
experienced the warmth of Heaven’s love and received the healing and forgiveness
their souls had so craved.
