The miracles of the healing of Jairus’ daughter and the woman with the bleeding disorder point us to the fact that Jesus is the true healer.

1. JESUS’ HEALING POWER TRANSFORMS THOSE WHO HUMBLY TRUST HIM.

Luke 8:40-42a Now when Jesus returned, a crowd welcomed him, for they were all expecting him. 41 Then a man named Jairus, a synagogue leader, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come to his house 42 because his only daughter, a girl of about twelve, was dying. (ESV)

A. Jesus’s healing is manifested in and through our humility.

B. Jesus’ healing power transforms what nothing else can.

2. JESUS’ TENDER HEALING RESTORES THOSE WHO BOLDLY BELIEVE IN HIM.

Luke 8:42b-44 As Jesus was on his way, the crowds almost crushed him. 43 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years, but no one could heal her. 44 She came up behind him and touched the edge of his cloak, and immediately her bleeding stopped. (ESV)

Mark 5:27-28 She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” (ESV)

A. Jesus’s tender healing is manifested in and through those who believe in Him.

B. Jesus’ tender healing restores what no one else can.

3. JESUS’ RESTORATIVE HEALING IS BETTER THAN WE IMAGINE.

Luke 8:45-48 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked. When they all denied it, Peter said, “Master, the people are crowding and pressing against you.” 46 But Jesus said, “Someone touched me; I know that power has gone out from me.” 47 Then the woman, seeing that she could not go unnoticed, came trembling and fell at his feet. In the presence of all the people, she told why she had touched him and how she had been instantly healed. 48 Then he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace.”

A. No one is too messed up, too unclean, or too irreligious to be restored by Jesus.

B. Jesus can do for you what no one else can.

4. JESUS’ TRANSFORMATIONAL HEALING GOES FURTHER THAN WE ANTICIPATE.

Luke 8:49-50  While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.” 50 Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.” (ESV)

Luke 8:51-56 When he arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. 52 Meanwhile, all the people were wailing and mourning for her. “Stop wailing,” Jesus said. “She is not dead but asleep.” 53 They laughed at him, knowing that she was dead. 54 But he took her by the hand and said, “My child, get up!” 55 Her spirit returned, and at once she stood up. Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were astonished, but he ordered them not to tell anyone what had happened.

A. No one is too good, too powerful, or too religious to be transformed by Jesus.

B. Jesus can do for you what nothing else can.

You will only experience his transformative healing if you humbly recognize your need for him.
