Jesus perceived that virtue had left His being, when the widow with the issue of blood touched Him and was healed. Virtue – healing, deliverance, salvation – The work of the Holy Spirit is something we carry. How do we build ourselves up in this faith? How do we allow Holy Spirit access to every place the soles of our feet tread, and to everyone our souls carry? We do this by abiding in Jesus and His words abiding in us. The more we do, the more fruit we bear.
