Jesus demonstrated the presence and power of God by performing miracles. He turned water into wine, healed the sick, calmed the storm, opened blind eyes, and raised the dead. While these beloved stories draw our attention to divine power, they also have something else in common: human desperation. Every time we see Jesus performing a miracle, we also get a glimpse into the gift of desperation, a gift that opens us to the dramatic power of God through our desperate need for him.
In this video Jessica explores the dual miracles of Jairus’ daughter and the bleeding woman to show us that because of God’s true and perfect love for us, He wants not only to meet our needs but to have a relationship with us. And nothing can keep Him from showing us love—not sickness or loneliness or despair or even death.
