Jesus took her by the hand and said to her “Talitha koum!” (which means “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). Mark 5:41
We see in St. Mark’s Gospel the raising up of a little girl who was dead to the World, but asleep to Jesus. In Jesus, death is sleeping, it is not permanent thing. He came to raise the dead!
There are so many beautiful things in our story today. Let us look at a few of them.
First, we have a synagogue official who comes to Jesus because his daughter is sick onto death. He had FAITH IN JESUS!
Jesus went with him to his home. There was public mourning for the synagogue official’s daughter’s demise. Jesus continued on to the daughter’s bed even though those who did not have faith ridiculed Him. We know the end of the story!
O death where is thy sting or grave thy victory? 1 Corinthians 15:55
The key in this miracle is FAITH! The synagogue official had faith and Jesus worked the miracle!
If there is death in our lives, have faith, call on Jesus and find healing!
