What does Luke 8:41 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 8:41

And behold, there came a man named Jairus
(See Gill on Mark 5:22).

and he was a ruler of the synagogue;
at Capernaum; and it was the more remarkable, that such an one should come to Christ, and express any regard to his person, or faith in his power, and therefore a "behold" is prefixed to this account; (See Gill on Matthew 9:18).

And he fell down at Jesus' feet;
showing great reverence and humility, and as Matthew says, "worshipped him"; if not in a religious, yet in a civil way:

and besought him that he would come into his house;
which was at some distance from thence, as appears by what follows.
