The theme for Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotional for today September 16 2023 is ”The Marks of Faith: The Marks of Healing” and it is a message highly recommended for today’s spiritual growth and upliftment.
SCRIPTURE: But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them.-Mark 1:30-31
We know with reasonable certainty the very spot where this miracle took place. The ruins of Capernaum have been uncovered, and archaeologists have identified the house of Simon Peter, based on ancient records. In the early centuries of the Church, it was converted into a meeting place for Christians. Jesus relocated to Capernaum after His rejection in Nazareth, and He was in Peter’s house often.
On this occasion, Peter’s mother-in-law was in bed, suffering from a fever. Jesus healed her, and what did she do? She went right back to work, serving the family—tending the kids, cooking, cleaning, washing dishes and clothes, sewing, and doing whatever she could to contribute to her home and town.
Jesus has a way of healing us from so many afflictions, doesn’t He? Whenever we experience any kind of healing—physically, emotionally, or otherwise—what should we do?
Start serving! That’s the true mark of healing.
The cure is in order to…minister to Christ, and to those that are his for his sake.
