Last week we marveled at the pushing-through faith of the hemorrhaging woman. This week we examine the propped up faith of Jairus. He finds Jesus and prevails upon him to come home with him and heal his daughter, but midway, when word of her death comes, his faith seems to have deflated. Now Jesus' faith takes over. "Fear not. Only believe, and she will be healed." And with that propped up, limping faith, Jairus hobbles to his house. There, too, Jesus supplies the word that is needed to clear the room, and tell the girl to get up. Jesus' faith is the active faith, with Jairus' faith being little more than compliant.
