I know many of the uses of the word touch. I have patted the head of my puppy until it responded with his own loving touch, licking my hand. I have stroked my kitten until it purred, rubbing against my leg with its soft fur.
Feeling and handling things with my fingers and hands can bring delights--or surprises. The velvet texture of rose petals is soft and smooth. The stem of the same rose gives another sensation to touch all together. I love the feel of rain as it touches my skin and the refreshing breezes of springtime.
The handshake or hug of a friend is a cherished moment. The touch of a loved one’s hand can evoke feelings of love. There is no touch more emotional than the caress of a baby as it snuggles in our arms.
All of these touches are an intricate part of our being--one of the senses given us by God to enjoy as a part of man’s experience. I have experienced all of these touches during my life. They have given me much joy; sometimes they have given me pain.
Nothing ever impacted my life like the touch of Jesus Christ. Gaither’s song states, “ shackled by a heavy burden beneath a load of guilt and shame. Then the Hand of Jesus touched me, and now I am no longer the same”. His touch is the most significant one of my life. Because of His touch my own senses are more responsive to all of life around me. His touch causes me to desire to reach out and touch the lives of others who may not know Him.
