The Lord Jesus Christ healed many people because He desires to help all, young and old.
Jesus’ Friends Lord Jesus had some friends who were fishermen, living near the Lake of Galilee. They owned ships.
One day the sun was shining in the sky and the ships were in the middle of the lake. Lord Jesus and the fishermen were on one of the ships. There was a large crowd of people on the shore. The people saw Lord Jesus...the children rejoiced. The ship drew near the shore where the crowds were waiting for Lord Jesus.
Jairus Then a man named Jairus arrived, he was the ruler of the synagogue. He was very sad because his only daughter was dying. Many people knew Jairus as he had a high status in society. Jairus threw himself down at Lord Jesus’ feet and begged Him to go to his house as his daughter was dying. He begged Him to come and lay His hands on her and heal her. And Lord Jesus went with him.
On their way to Jairus’ house… A man from Jairus’ house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the Master anymore”. Jairus was sad but Lord Jesus encouraged him and said: “Do not fear, only believe”. When Lord Jesus arrived at the house, He saw a large crowd and everyone there was crying and mourning for the child. When Lord Jesus entered the house He asked them: What is all this noise and weeping for? Do not cry: the child is not dead. She is only sleeping”. They all made fun of Him, because they knew that she was dead. Lord Jesus ordered them all not to enter her room.
The Lord Christ did not let anyone go in with Him except the child’s parents and three of His disciples: Peter, James and John. Lord Jesus took the child by the hand and called out, “Get up, child”.
The child began to breathe and move, her life returned and the child opened her eyes. She saw Lord Jesus and He helped her to rise and leave her bed. The girl got up at once. She smiled to Lord Jesus Christ, to her father and to her mother. She threw herself in the arms of her parents. Her sadness turned into great joy and the mother was very happy.
People came and knew what happened. The girl’s parents did not know how to express their thanks to Lord Jesus... Lord Jesus said to them “Give her something to eat”. Lord Jesus looked at her kindly and smiled to her showing His kindness and love for her. Her mother prepared the food and Jairus said to the people; “Jesus is our Lord God indeed”. Fear not, only believe.
Conclusion The Lord Jesus always responds to those who call upon Him for help. His help can reach the level of a miracle if He feels that a miracle is needed. He helps to bring happiness and joy to the hearts of those who believe in Him and His power.
