36Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.” –Mark 5:36
This passage from the book of Mark tells the story of a synagogue leader who came to Jesus begging him to heal his sick daughter. Before they arrived at his place, he received word that his daughter had died. Jesus then tells the man, “don’t be afraid; just believe,” and he goes on to heal the synagogue leader’s daughter.
This man was at a very low point of his life and saw no logical way out. His daughter was dying, and in fact, had died. His faith was strong enough to cause him to seek out Jesus. We don’t know for sure what his reaction was to the news that his daughter had died, but can only assume it was a natural reaction of utter grief as Jesus spoke words of comfort, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”
Sooner or later we all come to a point in our lives where our faith is shrouded by grief and fear. It’s at this point we need to be reminded of those words: “Don’t be afraid; just believe,” and know that God can see us through.
I ask that you give comfort to those in need, and encourage us all to know we need not be afraid, but just need to believe.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
The Continuing Need In Our Community.
Throughout the Findlay area, the need continues for emergency shelter for men, women, and families. Hancock County was hit by the downturn in the economy, resulting in individuals and families suffering from homelessness and hunger. As the only emergency shelter in the area able to accommodate the needs of men, women, and families, it is important that The City Mission of Findlay continues offering services to meet the current and future needs of the community.
While the economy has improved, there are still many in need of emergency housing, food and the resources necessary to gain employment and their own housing. According to a study conducted in July 2014 by Feeding America, 13.5% of the population in Hancock County doesn't always know where their next meal is coming from. Over the last 3 years the Mission has served 71,000 meals and has given out 2,616 food boxes. Read more...
