In this sermon, Elder Chua Seng Lee taught about faith through the healing of an unclean woman and Jairus’ daughter. Luke 8:40-56 is about Jairus, a synagogue leader, who sought Jesus out in order to save his daughter. While on His way to Jairus’ house, a woman who had suffered from bleeding for 12 years touched His cloak and was healed. Jesus healed her spiritually as well after her testimony. After which, He resurrected Jairus’ daughter when He was at Jairus’ house. These verses displayed the climax for Jesus’ power to heal and restore life. They also teach us three lessons on faith. Verses 40 – 44 are about the presence of faith; verses 45 – 48 are about the power of faith and verses 49 – 56 are about the perseverance of faith.
Just like the unclean woman, are we bleeding in any way (e.g. physically, spiritually, emotionally etc)? These lessons can teach and push us to grow and act in faith to which God will respond to.
And The Bleeding Stopped
