Breathing Space 2015 – #BSpace15 Session 5

5 Mar

And so we come to our final session, again led by Susie Mapledoram.

This session’s theme is need.

Returning to Mark 5:21-43 we see Jesus recognising the needs of others. Jesus recognises the need of the bleeding woman, that she needs healing of the bleeding. When Jesus meets this need her life changes completely. And Jesus also meets the need of Jairus, that his daughter needs to be made well. When Jesus heals his daughter, his life (and the lives of his whole family) changes forever.

Both needs are not negative, they are needs that will be life-changing.

Psalm 73:21-26

21 Thus my heart was grieved,

And I was vexed in my mind. 

22 I was so foolish and ignorant;

I was like a beast before You. 

23 Nevertheless I am continually with You;

You hold me by my right hand. 

24 You will guide me with Your counsel,

And afterward receive me to glory.

25   Whom have I in heaven but You?

And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You. 

26 My flesh and my heart fail;

But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

God is present and God is enough, no matter where we are and what we are doing.

Susie finishes by playing this video.
