And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet.” (Mark 5:22)

FALLING FOR JESUS

Have you fallen for Jesus yet?

Jairus, one of the rulers of the synagogue, fell at the Master’s feet and pleaded for Him to heal his daughter who was at the point of death. Matthew 9:18 states that this man was actually worshipping Jesus.

Here you have a dignified ruler humbling himself in a multitude of people, openly praising and worshipping the Father, and begging Him to work a miracle in his daughter’s life. What a bold position to be in: falling at the feet of Jesus, in worship.

Have you ever felt too ashamed to call on the name of the Lord in the midst of others? God may be waiting on you to proclaim Him in public, to prove His glory before others; but we recite the same thoughtless, routine prayers in our safe, private bedrooms, claiming we’re in worship.

Have you fallen for Jesus yet?

Your storms may be towering over you because you have been fearful of falling.
Your doubts may be overwhelming you because you have been afraid to bow down in worship. 
Your heart may be lonely and broken because you’re too strong to have your heart break for the Lord.

Falling can seem scary unless you’re falling purposefully towards the feet of our Master. This form of worship is an act of submission. Fall, so He can heal your hurts. Fall, so He can cure your illness. Fall, so He can give you understanding. Fall, so He can enlarge your territory. Fall, so He can raise whatever is dead in your life!

Just ... fall ... for ... Him.

Jairus didn’t care who was around; he fell down and worshipped. He even waited patiently as Jesus healed others, and the Lord and His mighty power showed up in the home of Jairus that day (v. 35-43) right on time.

Have you fallen on your face to worship God or are you defiantly standing up to Him, challenging Him to work a miracle in your life? Don't allow status or riches keep you from falling at the feet of Jesus.

He will show up for you too.

  1. My God, my God.. what a awesome wonder, beauty to fall at the feet of out master and loose yourself.. not caring who see's or who is around. Cries that are so strong and so powerful towards him letting him know how much you love him and care for him. That our master is in charge and in control of everything. Not saying a word to him because he already knows. I love this time that I have with our master not caring who sees. Knowing that it all is truly his. I do not care who sees me. I love it when that time comes in the house of the Lord. When he has opened up the flood gates, makeup is all over the place, cries that are out of control.. wanting more and more of our master. Feeling his loving arms around me.. he already knows...
