back to life

Don't be afraid. Just trust Me. Mark 5:36b

Jesus said this to Jairus, right after Jairus' servants & had to tell him that his daughter was dead.

Jairus had come to get Jesus, believing Jesus could heal his daughter, who was deathly sick at the time.

And it would make sense for the servants to come tell Jairus not to bother bringing Jesus, because Jarius' daughter was dead.

I mean, when you're dead, you're dead - right?

But Jesus had different plans...

So, he went to Jairus' house, went into the daughter's room, took her by the hand, & brought her back to life.


How many of us have something dead in our lives?

Or maybe how many of us feel just dead inside?

And how many of us have well meaning friends & family who tell us don't bother talking to Jesus about it?

I mean, what's dead is dead - right?

But Jesus has different plans for us.

He wants to come into our lives, into the most private places of our hearts & lives, & bring life to those areas of our life we've thought were long dead.

How do I know this?

He's done it for me.
