Unlimited Ignore the Doubters and Just Believe

Don’t be afraid; just believe (Mark 5:36,NIV).

It was a dramatic day. Jesus had told Jairus to not be afraid, and to just believe. Jairus believed, but when he and Jesus arrived at the house, Jairus’ twelve year-old daughter had already died, and the house is filled with professional mourners, making a terrible racket. Jesus said to them,

What’s all this commotion and crying about? The child isn’t dead. She’s only sleeping. – Mark 5:39, CEB.

But the people,

laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. – Luke 8:53, CEB.

They openly mocked the apparent stupidity of Christ. They knew a dead person when they saw one. By doing so, they tried to put fear back into Jairus’ heart.

What happens next is startling:

They laughed at him, but he threw them all out (Mark 5:40a, CEB).

Jesus did not want their laughter and mocking to ruin the wondrously beautiful moment that would come after he said the words,

Talitha koum,” which means, “Young woman, get up.” – Mark 5:41.

That’s when the party began, as a father and a mother received their daughter back to life again.

Don’t let anyone ruin, through unbelief, the wonderful moments that Christ has in store for you.

Don’t be afraid; just believe.

– Eliezer Gonzalez

Eli’s Reflection: There’s always going to be people who will laugh at you for your faith. At the cross, when Jesus faced death again, the people also mocked him. What lessons can you learn from what happened next, that will help you stay strong?
