Series: Then Came Jesus
Mark 5:22-24, 35-43
This morning if you have your Bibles we want to turn to the Book of Mark, Mark Chapter 5 beginning in Verse 22. We've been speaking from the Book of Mark and today's Easter message is entitled, ''Be Not Afraid! Only Believe!''. What a wonderful word from Jesus, ''Be not afraid, only believe''.
Because of Easter, we don't have to be afraid. We have a Lord who lives and He lives at the point of our need and we can believe in Him today and put our trust in Him.
Beginning in Verse 22, ''AND, BEHOLD, THERE COMETH ONE OF THE RULERS OF THE SYNAGOGUE, JAIRUS BY NAME; AND WHEN HE SAW HIM, HE FELL AT HIS FEET, AND BESOUGHT HIM GREATLY, SAYING, 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.
AND JESUS WENT WITH HIM; AND MUCH PEOPLE FOLLOWED HIM, AND THRONGED HIM.''
Now I want us to go to Verse 35, look at Verse 35 because those verses that are in between these two passages, we have preached from about the woman Jesus touched and healed on the way to take care of this request.
Verse 35, '' WHILE HE YET SPAKE, THERE CAME FROM THE RULER OF THE SYNAGOGUE'S HOUSE CERTAIN WHICH SAID, THY DAUGHTER IS DEAD: WHY TROUBLEST THOU THE MASTER ANY FURTHER? AS SOON AS JESUS HEARD THE WORD THAT WAS SPOKEN, HE SAITH UNTO THE RULER OF THE SYNAGOGUE, BE NOT AFRAID, ONLY BELIEVE.
AND HE SUFFERED NO MAN TO FOLLOW HIM, SAVE PETER, AND JAMES, AND JOHN THE BROTHER OF JAMES. AND HE COMETH TO THE HOUSE OF THE RULER OF THE SYNAGOGUE, AND SEETH THE TUMULT, AND THEM THAT WEPT AND WAILED GREATLY.
AND WHEN HE WAS COME IN, HE SAITH UNTO THEM, WHY MAKE YE THIS ADO, AND WEEP? THE DAMSEL IS NOT DEAD, BUT SLEEPETH. AND THEY LAUGHED HIM TO SCORN. BUT WHEN HE HAD PUT THEM ALL OUT, HE TAKETH THE FATHER AND THE MOTHER OF THE DAMSEL, AND THEM THAT WERE WITH HIM, AND ENTERETH IN WHERE THE DAMSEL WAS LYING.
