Studying these accounts of Jesus's healings is a wonderful experience for me. I ask myself, who needed faith, who was the subject of Christ's healing, how did the faith of one make the difference. Today's account was all about Jesus, merely giving relief so that he could be served. What a wonderful God we have in Christ.
Isn't it marvelous to see Christ exercise His healing for His own purposes. This is a rare event in the Gospels, but one that requires attention, as He was so worthy of praise, worship, and serving. Peter's mother in law was healed so that she could serve.
I ask, how am I healed so that I can serve? Does my frailty in Christ require that he work even in me?
