Spotlighted Scripture: Read Luke 8:40-56.
We all need Jesus.
In this passage, Luke contrasts two very different people who need Jesus. Jairus was a synagogue ruler meaning he was an important and affluent person. The bleeding woman would have been an outcast- for 12 years she would have been considered unclean by Jewish law.
Both of these people needed Jesus to heal. Both of these people took a risk by seeking Jesus to help. Both of these people needed to "not be afraid and just believe".
- How desperate are you for Jesus and His healing touch?
- What is the "pleading prayer" on your heart today?
