May 1, 2022 Pastor: Daniel Lanning Series: Mark: The Forgotten Gospel

Scripture: Mark 5:21–5:43, Hebrews 11:1–11:12, John 6:16–6:21, Isaiah 11:1–11:2, Psalm 130:1–130:8

FAITH IN THE FACE OF FEAR

Mark 5:21-43

The Story:

  • Another large crowd and meeting Jairus
  • A woman in need of healing approaches
    • “Daughter, your faith has made you well”
  • Jesus hears the news about Jairus’ daughter
    • “Little girl, I say to you, get up”

The Takeaways:

Hebrews 11:1-12, John 6:16-21, Isaiah 11:1-2, Psalm 130

  1. Fear is a normal part of life. It can cause us to run from God, or it can draw us closer to him.
  2. Faith is our response to God’s faithfulness, and it is sustained by God’s faithfulness. 
  3. Hopeless circumstances are transformed as we keep our eyes on, and learn to trust in, God’s faithfulness.
