Bringing the Bible to Life: Arise

Bringing the Bible to Life: Arise

This week, we reflect on the miraculous healing of Jairus’ daughter from Mark 5:40-43, a testament to Jesus' power and compassion. This story reminds us of the inherent worth and dignity of each individual, beautifully tying into our Daughter of the King collection.

Scripture Passage: Mark 5:40-43
"After he put them all out, he took the child’s father and mother and the disciples who were with him, and went in where the child was. He took her by the hand and said to her, 'Talitha koum!' (which means 'Little girl, I say to you, get up!'). Immediately the girl stood up and began to walk around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat."

As we reflect on this miraculous story, let's remember the power and compassion of Jesus in our own lives, and embrace our own identifies as children of God.
