In Mark 5, Jesus encounters a woman who had reached a dead end. After twelve years of suffering from a debilitating medical condition, she had probably given up hope. The Bible says she spent everything she had at various doctors, but instead of getting better, she just got worse.
Everything changed for this woman when Jesus came to her village. Jesus was on his way to heal the daughter of an important religious leader, and a huge crowd pressed up against him. The woman, though weak and tired from years of suffering, knew that if she could just touch the edge of Jesus’ cloak, she would finally be healed.
After trying everything, she turned to Jesus and touched his clothes.
In an instant, she was healed. Jesus turned to her and offered this blessing: “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.” Jesus has come to breathe new life into our dry and weary hearts. He has come to bring revival!
You’re invited to join us Sundays at 9 (online) and 10:30 (outdoors) as we tell more stories of hope and revival from the BIble!
