Jesus holds the power to fix our lives. He rules, even over sickness and death. But we need to engage in an "instigating action," a demonstration of our faith that Jesus does, indeed, rule in our lives. We see a model of that in both Jairus and the anonymous woman who touches Jesus's cloak on the way. What else can we learn from these two?
Throughout the book of Acts, God is presented as working miracles, that when they become known, lead to faith in Jesus. One such miracle involves a disciple named "Tabitha." She is known for her good works and acts of charity, but becomes ill and dies. When what happens next becomes known, many believe in the Lord!
