"Only believe". It sounds like it should be easy to do, doesn't it? "Don't waste any more time being afraid, Jairus. Only believe and she will be made well," Jrsus told Jairus. The woman with the hemorrhage was told her faith was the vital part that brought healing. In this instance, the word used is a little different. The word used here is pisteuō.
Why not, indeed? What Jairus found was that, at the end of all hope, Jesus was all he had. As it turned out, Jesus was all he needed. We will soon see the amazing way Jesus dealt with the little girl. At the end, it was worth it to trust Jesus.
It is no less "worth it" to entrust our utterly hopeless situations to Jesus today. Jesus stands willing to help, willing to show Himself strong on our behalf. There is only one requirement. pisteuō.
