Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? (Mark 5:31).
God never loses the individual in the crowd. “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God”—there is the multitude—but God breaks it down into individuals—“there is none righteous, no not one.” Sinners cannot hide in the crowd.
But there is another side: “God so loved the world”—there is the multitude—“that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever”—there is the individual—“believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Salvation is for every sinner in the crowd.
Be sure you press through the throng to touch Him. “For as many as touched [not thronged] Him were made perfectly whole.”
