Do not fear, only believe sermon

Sermon notes on Mark 5:35-43

“God is too great for us to fear”

Mark 5:35-43

Main point-as children of God, we do not have to fear or be anxious about anything, because we believe that Our God is greater than any possible problem in our lives.


35 While he was still speaking, there came from the ruler’s house some who said, “your daughter is dead.  “Why trouble the Teacher any further?”


36 But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear; only believe”


*1 We don’t have to fear, but can believe because God is a master architect*


**2 We don’t have to fear, but can believe because God is our shield**


3 We don’t have to fear, but we can believe because of who is with us!

Genesis 26:24 And the Lord appeared to him the same night and said, “I am the God of Abraham your father, Fear not, for I am with you and will bless you and multiply your offspring for my servant Abraham’s sake.”


4 and 5 We do not have to fear, but can believe because God is our strength and help

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand


37 And  he allowed no one to follow him except Peter and James and John the brother of James.

38They came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and Jesus saw a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly.

 39And when he had entered, he said to them, “Why are you making a commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but sleeping.” 

40And they laughed at him. But he put them all outside and took the child’s father and mother and those who were with him and went in where the child was. 

41Taking her by the hand he said to her, “Talitha cumi,” which means, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.”

 42And immediately the girl got up and began walking (for she was twelve years of age), and they were immediately overcome with amazement. 

43And he strictly charged them that no one should know this, and told them to give her something to eat.
