Matthew 9: 18-26
Today is the Eighteenth day of the Lent season. Today is another awesome story from the second year of Jesus' ministry, also known as THE YEAR OF POPULARITY. Jesus was preaching to a crowd of people who were hungry to hear the WORD of GOD. Jairus, a synagog leader came up to Jesus and pleaded with Him to come to his home to heal his dying daughter. Jesus went with Jairus to his home, but they were told that the daughter was now dead. Jesus replied that she was not dead but only sleeping. The crowd at Jairus' home laughed at Jesus' words. Jesus told the people to leave the house, and he went in to the little girls room. He said "Little girl, I say to you get up". The little girl came back to life and arose. When people heard that Jesus could even RESURRECT the dead they were astonished. This wonderful story is in Matthew 9 18-26 (below) Luke 8:41-56 and in Mark 5:21-43 CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.

Almighty and everlasting God, Thank you for this time of year that we remember what Jesus did for us so that we can become Your children, and live with you forever in heaven.

Thank you for being the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

“I will extend peace to her like a river,
and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream;
you will nurse and be carried on her arm
and dandled on her knees.
13 As a mother comforts her child,
so will I comfort you;
and you will be comforted over Jerusalem.”
1 Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life,
as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb
2 down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river
stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every
month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.
3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God
and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve Him.
4 They will see his face, and His name will be on their foreheads.
5 There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp
or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they
will reign for ever and ever. John and the Angel
6 The angel said to me, “These words are trustworthy and true.
The Lord, the God who inspires the prophets, sent his angel to
show his servants the things that must soon take place.”
