Miracles (1)

Our Bible Reading today is a chapter from the book of Mark. It tells us about some of Jesus’ miracles. These miracles were things that could only be done with God’s power.
Verses 1-20 tell us about a man who had many evil spirits living inside him. Jesus told the evil spirits to leave the man, and He sent them into a herd of pigs. The man who was healed told the people “about the great things Jesus did for him” (verse 20b).
Then verses 21-43 tell us about other people that Jesus helped. A man named Jairus came to Jesus. Why? Because his daughter was dying. Jairus asked Jesus to heal his daughter. While Jesus was going to Jairus’ home, someone told Jairus that his daughter had died. But Jesus went to the girl and brought her back from the dead. This was a wonderful miracle!
This chapter also tells us about a woman who was sick for 12 years. Jesus healed this woman and said to her, “Go in peace. You will have no more suffering” (verse 34b).
These miracles show us that Jesus is truly God’s Son. We can trust Him to save and protect us.
