28th June 2015 – Approaching God

Passage of the week: Mark 5: 21-43

This week’s passage speaks of two different approaches to God.

The leader in the community, who approaches Jesus openly, with confidence and boldness. The elderly woman, an outcast, who quietly follows him, unseen by most around her. Both seeking something from him, searching for contact, for answers. Both with faith in their hearts. They have come to the place of last resort, have run out of other options. And yet in Jesus they see hope for the future.

We approach God in as many different ways as there are people. Sometimes we are not sure what we are searching for. Sometimes we are afraid we might find the answer. We all come with our own baggage, our own agendas, our own problems and joys and desires.

The only thing that is guaranteed when you approach God is that he will turn to meet you. You are not another face in the crowd. He knows when you are seeking him, and he knows when you reach out to him.
