Jesus demonstrated the presence and power of God by performing miracles. He turned water into wine, healed the sick, calmed the storm, opened blind eyes, and raised the dead. While these beloved stories draw our attention to divine power, they also have something else in common: human desperation. Every time we see Jesus performing a miracle, we also get a glimpse into the gift of desperation, a gift that opens us to the dramatic power of God through our desperate need for him.
In this video Jessica focuses on the story of the blind man healed by Jesus, exploring how often our healing may require more than one touch. Though we’d all like an instantaneous cure, God loves to use other people—in community—to help bring about transformation and restoration in our lives. Often it’s through the second touch of relationships that we experience a deeper healing and find the wholeness God intends for us.
