He is with us all
He is with us all!
Luke 7:11-18 (KJV)
11 And it came to pass the day after, that he went into a city called Nain; and many of his disciples went with him, and much people . 12 Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her . 13 And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not . 14 And he came and touched the bier : and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise . 15 And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother . 16 And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people . 17 And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judaea, and throughout all the region round about . 18 And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things .
AThe only son of his mother, and she was a widow@ this was a land of no social security nor insurance. Without a husband nor son a widow had no way to live no one to provide for her. She would not live through the up coming winter so she had NO hope!
