WHEN NOTHING ELSE MATTERS

Luke 8:40-42

Luk 8:40 Now when Jesus returned, the crowd welcomed him, because they were all waiting for him.
Luk 8:41 Then a man named Jairus, who was a ruler of the synagogue, came up. Falling at Jesus’ feet, he pleaded with him to come to his house,
Luk 8:42 because he had an only daughter, about twelve years old, and she was dying. As Jesus was on his way, the crowds pressed around him.

Jairus was a man of some influence, being the synagogue ruler. People in the community looked up to him, asked for his advice, listened to his counsel. But when faced with the possibility of losing his precious child, nothing else mattered to him but getting to Jesus. During times of crisis, when we need Jesus the most, he often seems the hardest to get to. The crowds press around him, and it is easy to get pushed away. But fall-at-his feet desperation will win out, if we persevere in seeking him during those times of trial.

LORD, thank you for access to your love and grace.
