Be not afraid, only believe

Mark 5

v36

As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.

Impossible things became possible when Jesus Christ came and worked. He seemed to want to keep reminding people about faith. He wanted to teach us that He works and does mighty and miraculous things when we believe in Him.

And, once again, faith and fearfulness are mutually exclusive. We shouldn't fear terrible things that have happened in the past, like the people in Mark 5 could have feared when their loved one had died. We should fear the Lord, and besides that, we should have faith instead of fear.
