In Luke 8:40-56, two people are seeking Jesus because of his reputation. Jesus healed a woman and raised a young girl to life. Just as the woman and Jairus did, we should expect Jesus to come into our situation.
In Luke 7:18-23, John the Baptist is in prison, feeling isolated and lonely; he has lost his fire for God. Jesus sends John’s messengers to go and tell what they have seen and heard about Jesus’ miracles. Jesus also sends us to “Go and tell”.
