Acts 9:17 describes Ananias laying hands on Saul. Ananias was a stranger to Saul. But by obeying Jesus, he laid hands on Saul and transformed his life.
Our nation has lost confidence in touch as an appropriate means of communicating love and affection. And even most Christians don’t believe that there is virtue in the laying on of hands. Today, touching a stranger is potentially dangerous. People from Presidents to Supreme Court justices have been accused of inappropriate touch, and the entire nation is now keeping their hands to themselves. Hear how this powerful gift that God has given us can be used as we maintain both the appropriateness of touch and the confidence of spiritual power at the same time.
