The Gospel Reading this Sunday is Luke 13:10-17, Healing on the Sabbath. In Luke’s Gospel, he describes a crippled woman whom Jesus heals on the Sabbath with His words and touch, thus demonstrating His power and compassion. By His laying of hands, He shows those present the value of coming to Him and obeying God, “for nothing good comes to those who disregard God’s word.” Thus, if we want God to “touch” us, then we must be near Him in word, deed, and we must do so at all times in order to have His influence upon our lives, even on the Sabbath. When we are close with God at all times, His influence is upon our lives always.
