Trust in Jesus

Imagine the grief of a parent whose child is dying. One day a man named Jairus came to Jesus for help. His daughter was thought to be near death. Before Jesus could reach the child however, people came and reported that she had already died. Nevertheless Jesus goes to the house of Jairus. Jesus takes the girl’s hand and says, “Little girl, I say to you, arise!” Immediately she stands up and begins to walk around. Imagine the party in Jairus’ home that night! Often we think we know better. But Jesus reminds us of the need to trust him and to have no fear. – Mark 5:21-24, 35-43
