Some time back there, was a commercial that said, “Reach out and touch somebody.”  It was a promotion for the phone company wanting you to use their facilities to talk to someone.  From time to time you will here someone make reference to this ad.  The strength of the ad still has impact today.  This is not a new concept.  Jesus used it two thousand years ago.  He sent His disciples out to “touch somebody.”  Matthew 9: 1 “He called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness.”  And in verses 7 & 8 “As you go, preach this message: The kingdom of heaven is near.  Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, and drive out demons…”  And again, in Luke chapter 10 He sends out the seventy-two into towns and places He would be going.  Finally, we have the Great Commission—to touch the world with the message, power, and deliverance through His name.  This is the impact of last week and this week for Crossroads.  To reach out to those around us with the message of hope, love, power, deliverance, and eternal life through Jesus Christ.  There are two things you (everyone) can do.  Pray and touch (talk to) someone with the message of Jesus.   Who are you touching for Him today?
