Old Testament: Lamentations 3:22–33
Epistle: 2 Corinthians 8:1–9, 13–15
Gospel: Mark 5:21–43
Jesus has the power over death, for He brings salvation and peace. This is the message from our Gospel reading this morning, shown through the healing of the haemorrhaging woman and the raising of Jairus’ daughter. Through the healing medicine of HIs Word and Sacraments Jesus continues to bring to us this same salvation and peace so that we may have the forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
