Scripture(s): Mark 5:35-43 (NIV)
Does the faith you live by produce the kinds of results in your life that you read about in the Bible? If you are like most people, chances are that you are not even close to it. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. In this series, we will be challenged to believe the faith that we see in the Bible — the faith that caused Joshua to pray and see the Sun Stand Still in the sky — is the same faith we can live by today.
In this third week of this series, we look at the biblical narrative of a synagogue leader, Jairus who’s daughter has died and what he needed from Jesus now enters the realm of, IMPOSSIBLE. So, why bother? In many facets of life and our faith, we reach places where the “window-of-possible” passes and we quickly find ourselves living in lives of Why Bother.
This week we look at how when we buy into the Why Bother oppositions of fear and doubt, it can truly keep us from seeing God do the impossible through audacious faith.
