John 20 : 17

"Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not ; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God."

Though Jesus did not allow the woman (Mary) that saw her first to touch HIM, but one thing was sure; JESUS touched her. In our present contemporary world, we might not be able to see Jesus and touch HIM, but HE is not only seeing us; HE is touching our lives as needed. Jesus told the woman to hold on, pending His ascension to His Father.


However, Jesus allowed His disciples to touch HIM. John 20:27 “Then said to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.” What is the difference here? Jesus had not yet ascended to His Father, when Mary saw Him immediately after resurrection.


In the Bible passage above Jesus sent Mary to the brethren (including other disciples) not at the sepulcher ; about His ascension and thereafter showed up to them. Hebrews 4:15a confirms the above statement in first paragraph “For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities;”. If we cannot touch Jesus, HE can touch everything and anything concerning us. Surrender your life to Jesus; through whom we are the children of the most high by faith. Jesus is an integral part of Trinity and we can only be partaker of eternity, if we do not break our relationship link with JESUS. PRAISE GOD!!!! AMEN.
