Mark 3:9-10 says, And he spake to his disciples, that a small ship should wait on him because of the multitude, lest they should trample him.
For he had healed many; insomuch that they pressed upon him for to touch him, as many as had plagues.
Can you imagine living in the day of Jesus and hearing about the many miracles he performed? The crowds were not only hindering him but they were putting him in danger.
These people were desperate. Some of them were sick and some of their kids were sick and they were determined to get to the Lord. They had a need and they knew he could and would meet their need!
You know, the human family is a needy family and the Lord promises to meet our needs. I praise God for the way he meets the needs of my family!
