Now before we approach the text, just a larger context for you. Anybody who understands the Bible, anybody who understands the Holy Scripture knows that the human race fell as a result of the sin of Adam and Eve; and that mankind in total was catapulted into sin. Sin has released a deadly, pervasive force into the world that infects and affects every human being. We would go so far as to say it literally dominates every human being to the degree that every human being is, in fact, a slave of sin. Its force is so corrupting that it pollutes every faculty of man, and every thought of man, and every word of man, and every act of man. The force of that corruption spirals down even in the life of man, careening man into sickness, into sorrow, into suffering, into death, and finally into everlasting hell. And all the way along are the accompanying griefs and sorrows.

Since this is universally the case, the greatest question facing us is, “Is there escape? Is there any hope for deliverance from sin and its horrendous and everlasting consequences?” Well, the Bible gives the answer; and the answer is a resounding, “Yes. Yes.” There is a Deliverer; there is a Rescuer; there is a Savior. There is one, none other than Jesus Christ the Son of God. ~ John MacArthur

Summary
Jesus Heals a Woman and Jairus’s Daughter

 
Jairus fell at his feet

Jairus fell at his feet

And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea. Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.” ~ Mark 5:21-23

While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.” And he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James. They came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and Jesus saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly. And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was. Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. ~ Mark 5:35-42
 
Your daughter is dead.

Your daughter is dead.

Taking her by the hand

Taking her by the hand

And immediately the girl got up and began walking

Immediately the girl got up and began walking

Listen to John MacArthur on today’s scripture below:

The Power and Pity of Jesus, Part 1

 Mark 5:21–34
 
Power over disease, that is repletely evident in the New Testament record of the Gospels, one healing after another to the degree that He banishes illness from Israel for the time of His ministry. Power over demons again and again, week after week, day after day displayed. Power over death as well. And here in the text before us, Mark’s first recording of a resurrection: the one who gives life to demonstrate that He is the life.

The Divine Nature of Christ Devotional
Mark 5:21-45

 

Other religions might say they respect Christ for being a good prophet or moral teacher, but Scripture will not allow us to stop there. Jesus is also truly God and worthy of our worship. To be a servant of Christ is to worship Christ as the incarnate Creator. Let us share the truth of His deity with those who claim to respect our Savior.   – Read more click here
