Yes, it was about putting sin into perspective with the forgiveness and salvation that Jesus offers. Too often are groups of Christians so focused on how sin drags us down and what horrible sinners we are. We see in the story of the woman who was hemorrhaging, how we should be addressing our sins before God. The woman was considered unclean due to her condition and yet she broke the laws to come see and touch Jesus. She said "if only I could touch but the hem of his cloak, I might be saved." When noticing he was touched and finding her, he made her whole and let her know it was her faith that had saved her. The pastor's point is: what is your "hemorrhage" and does wallowing in it keep you from reaching out and touching the cloak of Jesus?
