And He came and took her by hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her; she got up and served them. Mark 1:31
The healing of the Mother-In-Law of Peter reminds us of a key part of our lives with Jesus. First, she was sick with a fever. Second, her Son-In-Law, his brother and his friends brought Jesus to her. Third, Jesus heals her and finally she gets to work doing what God wanted her to do: hospitality!
We are called to be ministers of healing and ministers of hospitality among many other obligations of our relationship with Jesus.
We can and must bring Jesus to people! Jesus is still in the healing business! And once we are physically able, we are called to serve one another.
We are part of a community of healing and service! In Jesus we change the world!
