Christian Owner’s Manual: Advice from and Acts of Jesus

Mark Chapter 5

What Jesus Said and DidOne of the synagogue rulers, Jairus, came to Jesus. On his way to Jairus’ home a woman who had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, touched Jesus’ cloak. Immediately she felt that she was freed from the suffering. At once Jesus realized that power had gone out of him.

Who touched my clothes?”

The woman, trembling with fear, told him the truth.

Daughter, your faith has healed you,” Jesus said. “Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” To Jairus Jesus said, “Don’t be afraid. Just believe.” But when Jesus told the crowd at the ruler’s home, “This child is not dead but asleep,” they laughed at him. Jesus said, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!

Immediately the girl stood. Jesus gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this. Mark 5:21-43
