Jesus is Lord of all even
the impossible. There are times we doubt this but the bible gives us example after example of the impossible becoming possible. Powerful over all---even over death. Death is a permanent condition. We just experienced the death of a parent in our school community last week. Death seems so final. So unbelievable. We are left wondering why... and the separation seems so permanent.
The world still mocks and scoffs at the reality of Christ’s power over death, but that doesn’t limit Him in any way. Accessible, available, interruptible, indomitable, imperturbable, perfectly calm...finally, what can I say, kind loving, maybe charitable....The last point here is just His tenderness, His love, His kindness. He came, displayed power, the resurrection, could have simply been a power display, say a word and it’s done. But there’s so much tenderness displayed in this that we see His loving heart.
Sometimes we see the impossibility of a situation and we just can't see a way out. I'm sure Jairus could not see a positive outcome from this situation and when his messengers arrived to say that his daughter had died I'm sure he felt the weight of sorrow and hopelessness. But that is not how the story ends. In the midst of impossibility Jesus made the impossible possible. He is the Lord of all.
