And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; AND WHEN HE SAW (JESUS), HE FELL AT HIS FEET, AND BESOUGHT HIM greatly, SAYING, MY little DAUGHTER lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she SHALL LIVE. And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him. And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, WHEN SHE HAD HEARD OF JESUS, came in the press behind, AND TOUCHED HIS GARMENT. For SHE SAID, If I may touch but his clothes, I SHALL BE WHOLE. And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? Mark 5:22-30. It's very crowded around Jesus, very noisy, much activity. Many people, for many reasons, wanting to just be near Christ, AND NOTHING MORE WAS EXPECTED OF HIM. To them, just being there was enough. AS EXPECTED, NOTHING HAPPENED TO ANY OF THEM. BUT TWO, heard of the Son Of God/man Jesus, AND EXPECTED THE IMPOSSIBLE TO BE DONE. AND IT WAS, AND THEY WERE RADICALLY CHANGED FOREVER. No man, changed by Christ, can go back to the old life of death. Christ makes an impact that can't be denied. AND THAT IMPACT WILL IMPACT OTHERS AROUND THEM. Christ is Life, and Life always spreads and grows. Satan breeds death and destruction. Christ Breeds Life and Life Eternal. Christ is Physically, Spiritually, and Emotionally TOO BIG to contain, and He Overflows your little boundaries. Believers can't stop Christ from impacting others through them, AND WOULDN'T TRY EVEN IF THEY COULD. No Christian, being of Sound Mind, would even try to keep the Light of Christ hidden "under a bushel". Therefore, they AND YOU, will, Be Blessed.
