“While He was still speaking, someone came from the synagogue leader’s house, saying, “Your daughter is dead. Don’t bother the Teacher anymore.” When Jesus heard it, He answered him, “Don’t be afraid. Only believe, and she will be made well.”…Everyone was crying and mourning for her. But He said, “Stop crying, for she is not dead but asleep.” They started laughing at Him, because they knew she was dead. So He took her by the hand and called out, “Child, get up! ” Her spirit returned, and she got up at once. Then He gave orders that she be given something to eat.”
Luke 8:49-50, 52-55 HCSB
Dead. When they pronounced someone dead they’d been dead 72 hours. No pulse. No breathing. Gone… But Jesus.
Do you know someone who seems so spiritually dead you consider them a lost cause? You could invest the same time in more people and yield greater numbers for the kingdom…right? But Jesus calls us to reach into the hearts of hardened, hurting people with love. Water the soil continuously and till it with life-giving Truth. Let the Giver of Life revive them.🚦
