04/14 Matthew 9:23-26
When Jesus arrived at the official’s home, he saw the noisy crowd and heard the funeral music. 24 “Get out!” he told them. “The girl isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.” But the crowd laughed at him. 25 After the crowd was put outside, however, Jesus went in and took the girl by the hand, and she stood up! 26 The report of this miracle swept through the entire countryside.
The little girl was dead. Jesus took her by the hand and she was alive. In Jesus Christ we are raised from death in our sin to new life in Jesus Christ. He is Lord, Lord of all.
