My faith needs an overhaul. Jesus said I will do even “greater works” (John 14:12) than He did and yet sometimes there is such stress and worry in my prayer for others. I’m reluctant to pray for people because what if they are not healed? What if I damage what little faith they may have? What if I somehow bring disrepute to Jesus who I love so much?
While I’m deliberating those in need sit there sick and in need and essentially ignored. I’ve got to do better.
Jesus is so good in this passage. Simply touched Peter’s Mum-in-law’s hand. Healed. V15. A simple command to the demon possessed. Free. V16. His motivation for action was the need before Him and he acted simply and immediately. What a great example!
Thanks Jesus for modelling how you want me to care for those in need around me. Remind me please to just get on with it and do it. Amen
