The Gospel Project: Unit 22, Session 2
Jesus Heals a Woman and Raises a Girl. Mark 5
Point 3: Trust in Jesus' Power to Remove the Curse of Death. Mark 5: 35-42
This account doesn't give the names of the father or daughter. But I find it intriguing that Mark refers to the father as, "the ruler of the synagogue".
I think it demonstrates that "religion" isn't going to heal us, it doesn't have the Power we need! And it certainly won't provide us with Life Eternal! We must have a "relationship" with Christ, it is His Power that heals:
And Brings LIFE.
Religion serves as a vehicle to express our faith, gather in community, and serve others. But Healing, Salvation, Life come only through Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
What are some ways the Resurrection Power of Jesus has worked in you? Let's take a few minutes th Praise Him!
Today's hymn comes at a time when we are being challenged on numerous fronts. Constant strife comes into our homes through the TV, Radio, Smartphone. It can dry up our Joy.
Let's sing for a renewal, a refreshed FLAME!
