Miracles of Jesus...(cont.)

Jesus Healed a Woman and Raised a Girl--Mark 5:21-43
Jairus fell at Jesus’ feet and begged for His help. “My daughter is about to die! Please come touch her so she will be healed and live,” he said. Jesus went with Jairus, and many people followed, crowding around Him. In the crowd was a woman who had been bleeding for 12 years. She had seen many doctors and spent all her money, but no one could help her. The woman had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind Him in the crowd and touched His clothes. She said to herself, “If I touch even His clothes, I will be healed.” As soon as she touched Jesus’ clothes, her bleeding stopped and she knew she was healed. Jesus turned around and said, “Who touched My clothes?” The woman, knowing she was healed, came forward and fell before Jesus. She told Him what had happened. Jesus said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace. You are healed.” While Jesus was speaking, some men came from Jairus’s house and said, “Your daughter is dead.” Jesus told Jairus, “Do not be afraid. Just believe.” Jesus and three of His disciples went to Jairus’ house. Jesus took Jairus and his
wife into the room where the child was. He took the girl by the hand and said, “Little girl, get up.”
Immediately, the girl got up and began walking around. Jairus and his wife were amazed. Jesus told them to give the girl some food and to not tell anyone what had happened.
Christ Connection: By healing the woman and raising the little girl from the dead, Jesus showed His power as the Messiah. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to save people from sin and death. When we trust in Jesus, God forgives our sin and changes us to be more like His Son.

We had a great night of Impact as we continued our study on the miracles of Jesus.  The kids and leaders are digging deeper into the stories and asking/answering questions in their discussion time.

Bible Lesson:  Four Friends Helped--Mark 2:1-12


Jesus had been traveling, and He went to Capernaum. When the people in the town heard that Jesus was home, they gathered at the house to hear Him teach. So many people came that they stood in the doorway, and there was no more room for anyone else.
Just then, four men came to the house. They were carrying their friend on a mat because he could not walk. They wanted Jesus to heal him, but they could not get through the crowd. So the men carried their friend up to the roof. Then they lowered their friend through the crowd so that he was right in front of Jesus. Jesus saw that the friends had faith, and He told the man lying on the mat, “Young man, your sins are forgiven!”
Jesus knew what the religious leaders were thinking. He said to them, “Why are you thinking like that? Is it easier for Me to say to this man, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or ‘Get up and walk’?” Jesus showed His power on earth to forgive sins by turning back to the man on the mat. “Get up, pick up your mat, and go home,” Jesus said. 
The man who had been unable to walk immediately got up. He picked up his mat, and he went home, just like Jesus commanded. Everyone in the crowd could hardly believe what they had seen! They praised God.
Christ Connection: The man who was paralyzed needed to be healed. Jesus knew
this and did something even greater; Jesus forgave his sins, and then He healed the
man. Because Jesus is God, He has the power and authority to heal and forgive. Jesus
