51 When they arrived at the house, Jesus wouldn’t let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, James, and the little girl’s father and mother. 52 The house was filled with people weeping and wailing, but he said, “Stop the weeping! She isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.”
53 But the crowd laughed at him because they all knew she had died. 54 Then Jesus took her by the hand and said in a loud voice, “My child, get up!” 55 And at that moment her life returned, and she immediately stood up! Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat. 56 Her parents were overwhelmed, but Jesus insisted that they not tell anyone what had happened. (Luke 8:49-56 NLT)
Jesus gives hope to those who mourn. He brought Jairus' daughter back to life and turned sorrow into joy. Our lives are never the same after Jesus touches us. He gives us hope, peace and joy. We have a new life in Christ. Death is not our end. It is the gateway to eternal life. Even though our bodies will die one day (unless Jesus returns before that happens), we will always be alive in Christ.
