Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded.
The work of Jesus in a person’s life is unlike the work of any other. The total change that He brings literally moves a person from death to life. It is astounding. No one else can do such. It is the mark of Who He is. He doesn’t just make bad people good. He makes dead people alive and there is a significant difference in the two. He recreates from the inside out. With His Word alone He resurrects the dead! The Good News is that this Word is still alive and among us. He still speaks to dead people, even dead people walking, and enlivens them. His Word is Life and that Life is the Light of men.
