Jesus gets right to work today, healing first Simon’s mother-in-law to a complete recovery from fever. Like many of our towns and cities, word travels fast and soon the whole town is gathered at the door.
They had faith in Jesus. More than that, part of our mission today is to carry his example out far and wide so that that the grace of God can inspire countless people to grow in faith.
Who do you know that needs Jesus’s healing today?
Let Jesus take away any illness of suffering our loved feel this day, O Lord. Amen.
