This is the story of Jairus and his dying daughter, the second of three messages (6/21, 6/28, and 7/5) on miracles from Mark 5.
There were several takeaways from this passage:
- Jairus went to Jesus – in humility and in faith
- Jesus was moved by faith and by compassion … What’s the difference between compassion and sympathy?
- When Jesus said not to give up, Jairus didn’t give up.
- Jesus didn’t give up, either. He knew what was going to happen.
