WEDNESDAY 10TH MAY, 2017 READ – Day: Mark 13; Night: Ruth 1-2
THEME: RELEASING THE POWER OF CHRIST
TEXT: MARK 5: 35 – 43
HYMN: EMHB 561 – Father of Jesus Christ, my Lord
Jairus’ daughter had fallen sick. While Jesus was on His way to Jairus’ house to heal her, a message came to Jairus that his daughter had died (Vs. 35). As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, ‘Be not afraid, only believe’ (Vs. 36). The power of Jesus Christ is released when we believe on Him.
First, we need to see Jesus Christ in every situation and circumstance of our lives. Jesus was with Jairus when the sad news came. The presence of Jesus makes all the difference in the world. Can you see Jesus Christ in your situations?
Secondly, we need to receive the Word of God concerning everything that pertains to us. Jairus received the Word of Jesus Christ, “Be not afraid, only believe.”
Thirdly, we need to believe on Jesus Christ. We need to venture all upon Christ and depend upon Him. We need to lean the whole of our weight upon Him! Jesus said: ‘Don’t be afraid, but lean on Me; depend on Me, roll over those cares unto Me’.
I do not know what your problem is but you need to see Jesus with the eyes of your heart. You need to have an encounter with Him; you need to draw closer to His presence, be with Him and abide with Him. You need to feed yourself with the Word of God. You need to believe on Jesus. Surely, you will experience the power of Christ in your life.
MEMORY VERSE: Mark 5:36 “As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, ‘Do not be afraid; only believe.”
PRAYER: Lord Jesus Christ, speak to me today, enable me to receive Your Word and believe. Release Your unfailing power upon my life. Amen.
