Good morning, welcome to our Daily Reflections session live from the Manse with Barry. We continue with our bible reading and discussing the book The Day I Met Jesus.
Our Daily Reflection sessions are live on Facebook each weekday at 11am but for those who don’t have Facebook we now have the full recording avaliable over on the St. Mark’s YouTube channel please if you haven’t already subscribe to the channel.
Our reading today is from Luke’s gospel reading from chapter 8 verse 40-48
Jesus raises a dead girl and heals a sick woman
40 Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying.
As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years,[c] but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped.
45 ‘Who touched me?’ Jesus asked.
When they all denied it, Peter said, ‘Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.’
46 But Jesus said, ‘Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.’
47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.’
