Healing Two Women: Commentary on Mark 5Something should be given her to eat - For though he had employed an extraordinary power to bring her to life, he wills that she should be continued in existence by the use of ordinary means. The advice of the heathen is a good one:. While Christ teaches men the knowledge of the true God, and the way of salvation, he at the same time teaches them lessons of prudence, economy, and common sense. And it is worthy of remark, that all who are taught of him are not only saved, but their understandings are much improved. True religion, civilization, mental improvement, common sense, and orderly behavior, go hand in hand. Copyright Statement These files are public domain. Bibliography Clarke, Adam. Mark Something should be given her to eat. A great thing never made Christ forget a little thing. This is real greatness. Always as you go up to the highest, you find it more and more that the little things take a larger place. The disclosures of the microscope are quite as wonderful as the discoveries of the telescope. And if any thoughtful, religious man had to tell what had given him his highest idea of God, and made the deepest impression of His love, he would probably single out some very small event of life. It warn so wonderful, and so good, that the great God should care to notice, and superintend, and answer prayer, about such a little thing, which might have appeared so very insignificant. And, correspondingly, that is the greatest faith which is occupied about minutiae. There is many a man who believes that he is saved; but yet finds it very hard to trust God for the details of common life. God always feeds the life He gives. I see it in creation. The light and air created before vegetable life; the vegetable life before animal life; animal life before human life. And has not God secured it? Are not subjects for thought, and for the exercise of our rational faculties, in every place? Neither its words, nor its histories, nor its doctrines, nor its promises. You must find the Christ that is in it, before it feeds you. And the more Christ you find in the word, the more that word will feed your soul. Secondly, all spiritual acts between the soul and God feed. Meditation-adoration-prayer-secret converse. For the Holy Ghost flows through means. And he carries Christ into the very currents of your being, till Christ mingles with your very life blood. Everything that is beautiful-everything that is loving-everything that is wise-everything that is true-in nature, in art, in science, in history, and in Providence-everything may be an element of nutrition. It may all turn to spiritual nerve, and power, and growth. And fourthly, to a very great extent, Christian intercourse and fellowship feed. This was ordained for this very end. It is essentially feeding. It is the feast where there is spread the richest, the sweetest, and the best! How can some of you expect your souls to live, if you neglect this great sustentation of all spiritual life? Vaughan, M.
“Our Stories are Connected” A sermon on Mark 5:21-43
What does Mark mean? This turns out to be untenable, and soon the entire district knows of His work Matthew His command may have been realistic, as the professional mourners may not have seen the girl. The parents would not have been lying to repeat the statement that she was asleep, as Jesus used the word Mark But people are drawn to the flashy, not the reasonable, and the beneficiaries of Jesus' miracles are not good at holding their peace Mark — There are several reasons as to why Jesus may have asked the girl's parents to give her something to eat. They'd had an extremely stressful day, and focusing on the ordinary can go a long way in re-establishing equilibrium in a household. This also puts the parents' focus on the girl and her needs. Outside the door are several professional mourners suddenly out of a job and a good part of the city waiting for news. The girl needs to be cared for, not made a spectacle of. The act of eating, in and of itself, serves as proof that the girl is alive and able to function. This is not the last time Jesus will use eating as a proof of life. When He appears to the disciples after the resurrection, they are not convinced that He lives by looking at Him, but by watching Him eat fish Luke — The implications of these moments don't leave out us, the modern readers. In the end times, God will give Christ-followers glorified bodies and invite us to the marriage supper of the Lamb Revelation — There we will feast to celebrate our resurrection and new life in the grandest meal in human history. And there will be no need to keep quiet about it. Used by permission of Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. Carol Stream, Illinois The Christian Standard Bible.
