02/21/19 – Mark 5:21-43; Psalm 38:1-22; Proverbs 10:8-9
Could you envision two more poignant and uplifting stories than what we read in Mark’ gospel today? The healing of the woman with the bleeding disorder and the raising of Jairus daughter occurred within a matter of hours. So much pain turned into so much joy!
And as you read Mark’s account I am sure you denoted a common theme — FAITH in action.
Mark 5: 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Mark 5: 35 While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?” 36 Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”
