Monday Musings – Flock To Him

Scripture reports many instances where people flocked to Jesus like metal to a magnet. One example is set forth in the Gospel of Luke (6:12-19). 

Everyone in the crowd,” the evangelist tells us, “sought to touch Jesus because power came forth from Him and healed them all.”

Oftentimes, we muse what it might have been like if we could have been there in the crowd reaching out to touch Jesus. We ignore the fact that He is still here among us, locked as a prisoner in the tabernacles of His Churches. Oh, that we would flock to Him there 
where He awaits our visits and remains just as willing to heal us.

What ingratitude we display our loving Lord by our absence and lack of belief.

Why not take a moment today or during the week to pause before the tabernacle and thank God for the Gift of His Presence?
