  • 1. WHEN YOUR WORLD CAVES IN Luke 8:40-56
  • 2.
    • Restoration and Healing
    • 8:40 Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, because they were all waiting for him. 8:41 Then a man named Jairus, who was a ruler of the synagogue, came up. Falling at Jesus’ feet, he pleaded with him to come to his house, 8:42 because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying.
    • As Jesus was on his way, the crowds pressed around him. 8:43 Now a woman was there who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years but could not be healed by anyone.

    • 8:44 She came up behind Jesus and touched the edge of his cloak, and at once the bleeding stopped. 8:45 Then Jesus asked, “Who was it who touched me?” When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the crowds are surrounding you and pressing against you!” 8:46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me, for I know that power has gone out from me.” 8:47 When the woman saw that she could not escape notice, she came trembling and fell down before him. In the presence of all the people, she explained why she had touched him and how she had been immediately healed.

    • 8:48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”
    • 8:49 While he was still speaking, someone from the synagogue ruler’s house came and said, “Your daughter is dead; do not trouble the teacher any longer.” 8:50 But when Jesus heard this, he told him, “Do not be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” 8:51 Now when he came to the house, Jesus did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, and James, and the child’s father and mother.

    • 8:52 Now they were all wailing and mourning for her, but he said, “Stop your weeping; she is not dead but asleep.” 8:53 And they began making fun of him, because they knew that she was dead. 8:54 But Jesus gently took her by the hand and said, “Child, get up.” 8:55 Her spirit returned, and she got up immediately. Then he told them to give her something to eat. 8:56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them to tell no one what had happened.

  • 10. When Your Whole World Caves In… Run To Him --Luke 8:40-42 It’s the most difficult loss …a child Put religious differences aside when it comes to those deep needs Here comes Jesus!
  • 11. Interrupt Jesus…He Loves It! (He loves you!) --Luke 8:43-48
    • Jesus can be moved, halted, reached and impressed with faith that cries out.
    • The woman with a bleeding ailment stole a miracle from Jesus…and won his approval.
    • Jesus could be interrupted…can I?
  • 12. ‘ Lost Causes’ Are Resurrected By The Lord Of Life -- Luke 8:49-56
    • A little girl is brought to life.
    • Can the parents keep this a secret?
    • Jesus: “Do not tell anyone…”
    • Any ‘Lost Causes’ here today?
  • 13. If Jesus Is The Son Of God, These Miracles Are Small Potatoes
    • If he Created the universe
    • If he Created life forms: Plants, marine, land animals and birds
    • If he Created Us in his image
    • Then! Then healings and miracles are hardly a blip on his ‘possibility’ screen
  • 14. The Challenge Is To Believe That Jesus Is The Son Of God, As He Claimed
    • Hugh Hefner (of Playboy fame) If we had any real evidence that Jesus did return from the dead… “It assures an afterlife and all kinds of things that we would all hope are true”.
    • Paul, the Apostle “If Christ has not been raised your faith is futile”. --I Corinthians 15:17
  • 15. The Challenge Is To Believe That Jesus Is The Son Of God, As He Claimed
    • The power of Paul’s testimony: A bona fide enemy of Jesus who was transformed by meeting the resurrected Jesus. --Acts 22:1-9 and v. 17,18
    • The power of James’ conversion (Jesus’ half-brother) Doubted Jesus until the resurrection. Then became the leader of the Jerusalem church and died a martyr.
  • 16. I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. I trust him as my Lord and Savior. He is my bridge over troubled water. Confession
