Daily Word Of God

Mark 6:53-56

Having made the crossing, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and moored there. When they disembarked people at once recognised him, and started hurrying all through the countryside and brought the sick on stretchers to wherever they heard he was. And wherever he went, to village or town or farm, they laid down the sick in the open spaces, begging him to let them touch even the fringe of his cloak. And all those who touched him were saved.

  • How ought my attitude towards others change so that I can be more Christ-like to the needy, homeless and the aged?


  • Ask Jesus to inspire you to live more fully for His people who are in need of healing and to know the Word of God.
