Mark- Please heal my daughter

Please Heal my Daughter

Mark 5:21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea.

Jesus had gone to the Gadarenes to deliver one man with a legion of demons. Now returning to Galilee, he is greeted with a legion of people with needs. All people are needy and all people need Jesus. You are not forgotten, whether alone or in a crowd, Jesus is your hope. Seek him and he will receive you. You will not want to seek Jesus, unless God the Father has moved in your heart.

John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father.

Was the demon possessed man seeking God, being filled with a legion of demons? Listen, no matter the sin, God is reaching out to you; come to Jesus.

Mark 5:22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet,
Mark 5:23 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.

Most of the rulers did not believe in Jesus, but, Jairus put away his views for the sake of his dying daughter. Many used to send their children to Sunday School, but not attend themselves. They saw something good there for their children, but not for them. Are you too sophisticated for Jesus? That is pride. Are you wiser than Jesus, or are you believing as the world? Are you without sin? Jesus was, so how can you be his judge? This is just wrong thinking. Jesus is a sound mind. Come to him and receive of him

Mark 5:24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him.

The crowd saw the work of Jesus, it was good. They followed him now, but at the end they would agree to crucify him. Their love was faulty, so many of the world have this kind of love that wants to receive or take from another, but this love is not pure, it takes and then leaves, or turns upon the giver. God's love is pure, a sacrificial love, such as Jesus who gave himself for us. In Jesus is healing and eternal life. He will not leave you.
