My institute teacher referenced the story of Christ raising the daughter of Jairus tonight. Jairus first asked Christ to heal his daughter:
My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. (Mark 5:23)
And when Christ didn’t arrive before she died, Jairus felt like giving up, and Christ responded:
“Be not afraid, only believe.” (Mark 5:36)
He went on to raise her from the dead, even when people “laughed him to scorn” (Mark 5:40).
I believe that Christ performed this miracle! And my HWN today was connecting that faith with the reality that he can perform miracles for me in my life too!
p.s. my cousin Kyler got his mission call to Malaga Spain today!!!
