Can I really be healed?
We hear about Jesus healing a bleeding woman and raising a dead girl to life this Sunday at PEACE Lutheran Church. Many first-century people would have found aspects of these stories shocking. “This guy Jesus heals outcasts!” There he goes again, shaking things up!
Come to worship and see what your reaction is! Are you willing to be healed?
“Jesus said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed.” – Mark 5:34
Today’s Bible Readings: Lamentations 3:22-33; Psalm 30; 2 Corinthians 8:7-15; Mark 5:21-43
Today’s Sermon: “Two People Healed”
Mark’s story raises the question, “What does faith look like?”
- This section gives two examples:
- From the perspective of a social outcast;
- From the perspective of a powerful man.
- It’s key here how Jesus responds to the weak and vulnerable.
- Faith looks like belief that life can be restored, dignity upheld and new doors opened.
- Are you ready to be healed?
