The faith of Jairus and the woman remind us that nothing is impossible for God
by Renae Bauer
Does faith falter when life turns from difficult to hopeless? Sunday’s Gospel provides two examples of people who, by most standards, should have given up. But they didn’t. They wouldn't.
First, Jairus begs Jesus to help his dying daughter. Second, a woman believes she will be healed of her long-term affliction if she touches Jesus’ garment. The faith of Jairus and the woman combined with Jesus’ saving power result in what many people would call impossible.
- Are you ready to believe in the seemingly impossible?
- When is the last time you did?
