October 2-Triple Header

Scripture Lesson: Mark 5:1-43

The only triple header in baseball in the 20th century occurred on this date in 1920. The Reds win the first two games 13-4 and 7-3. The Pirates avoid the sweep by winning the finale 6-0 with the game called after six innings due to darkness. Peter Harrison is the home plate umpire for all three games.



In today’s Scripture lesson Jesus has His own triple header of sorts. He has three healings that take place. He heals the man possessed by a demon and then with His disciples goes back across the Sea of Galilee. Upon landing He is approached by one of the synagogue rulers Jarius whose daughter is sick. Jarius knows that if Jesus places His hands on his daughter, she will be healed. As they are moving toward Jarius’ home a woman who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, not wanting to bother Jesus but believing in Him, just reached out and touched his cloak and was healed. Jesus commends the woman’s faith. At the same time some men came from Jarius’ house to inform him his daughter had died. Jesus told Jarius to not be afraid, but to just believe! Jesus sends the mourners out of the house and with Peter, James, and John along with the parents goes to the daughter, takes her by the hand, and tells her to get up. Immediately she gets up and walks! That is some triple header of healing!



1. Why was faith so important for the woman and Jarius to have?

2. What do all three of these events show us today?

3. What is Jesus calling you to believe this day?



Jesus met the needs of the demon possessed man, the woman who had been bleeding for 12 years, and the parents of the little girl who died. The same Jesus is waiting for us to approach Him in faith to meet our needs today!

Thanks for your feedback. I diskile completely fluid layouts as well. But I've been thinking of making it fluid between 1024 768 and 800 600.My problem comes in that my theme is bit too narrow and there's little whitespace. After looking at my analytics and seeing that the spread of screen resolutions is so broad now with the popularity of widescreen monitors that I feel like 800 600 is just too small.What do you think?
