But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, ONLY BELIEVE.” Mark 5:36 (ESV) Verse 35 of this passage relates the sad story of the death of a young girl. She was the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue. Even though he knew that his daughter was dead as can be he went to plead with Jesus. Another portion in Mark 9:18 relates the ruler's faith in Jesus's Power. He cried out to Jesus saying, "...My daughter has just died. But come and put your hand on her, and she will live."The people tried to discourage the ruler's faith in Jesus but Jesus himself heard and comforted him saying, "do not fear...only believe."
What does this tells us? Miracles are real. Do they really happen today? Yes, miracles do happen! But, do you believe?
