Summary: In Life We Will Have to Learn how to Cope with Interruptions, because, they will come...
Coping with Interruptions
1) Authority – Jesus & Jairus (Certain Ruler)
2) Conversation – (Dialogue) Jesus w/ Jairus (Certain Ruler) Jesus w/ The woman with the Issue of Blood
3) Interruption - Woman with the Issue of Blood (Prevented the Progress)
18–19. A certain ruler (Man of Authority) The other Gospels indicate that his name was Jairus (Mk 5:22–43; Lk 8:41–56). Worshiped Jesus - Worshipped appears 70 times, Worship appears 108 times. This suggests that he recognized Jesus’ deity and authority. We are told that she was dying when her father first came and she died while he was en route.
At the point of hearing God Restores your faith – Romans 10:17 - So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
20–22. I shall be whole (.I shall be saved). It was customary for a rabbi to address a young girl as daughter. Jesus’ exhortation to be of good comfort means to cheer up. The further statement, thy faith hath made thee whole, indicates that God’s blessing on our behalf is usually in proportion to our willingness to trust Him.
Your actuality has to give away to your possibility because there are:
1) Moments 2) Opportunities 3) Blessings that have timing connected to them
23–26. The scene described here is typical of a Middle Eastern home where someone lay dead. Mourners were actually hired to make noise. The ministrels were fluteplayers. Jesus’ statement that the maid is not dead, but sleepeth meant that her death, though real, was ultimately going to be a temporary “sleep” in light of the fact that He would quickly raise her back to life again. On the same principle, the “… dead in Christ …” (I Thess 4:16) are said to be asleep only in view of the certainty of their resurrection. It should also be observed that those whom Jesus brought back to life during His earthly ministry later died a natural death, whereas those who are resurrected at the last day shall never die again.
When you’re at your lowest point it is what you have heard that brings you out of your trials
Even your Blessings are Subject to Order & Obedience
Order - 1Cr 16:1: Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
Obedience - Hebrew 5:8: Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.
