Faith in Desperate Times

Luke 8.40-56: Sometimes life takes us to desperate times.  It can sometimes be due to sickness that affects us not just physically, but even socially and financially.  It can sometimes be due to others being sick and sometimes even the death of others.  What do we do in such times?  In today’s text, we see both and how both turn to Jesus in desperate times.  It is in these desperate situations we see the power and compassion of Jesus displayed along with the resounding revelation that He is truly God.  We also see characteristics of faith as this is the response God desires from us.  Let us have the faith of these we learn from today.
