(Continuation of yesterday's post)
Jesus stops in the crowd, looking for whoever touched Him. The woman slips from her hiding places and comes to fall down before Him. She confesses that it was she who touched Him and bears testimony that she has been made whole immediately.
She explains this to the Savior. He tells her, "Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith has made thee whole."
(Comfort here also refers to the Greek word for courage.)
Nearly simultaneous to the moment of the woman's testimony, Jesus receives word that Jarius's twelve-year-old daughter has died. His response to the messenger: "Fear not; believe only, and she shall be made whole." Jesus hurries to the girl's home. In another miracle, He raises her from the dead.
But the miracles haven't stopped here. Stay tuned for tomorrow's post to understand more of what Christ has done.
Joy for today: knowing that faith can make us whole.
