The healing of Peter’s mother in law is the next miracle in our series…This miracle is recorded for us in Mat 8:14-15; Mar 1:30-31, Luk 4:38-39 .
Here, we find our Lord, during a visit to Peter’s house, seeing Peter’s mother in law lying sick with a fever. We are told that the Lord “stood over her”, “touched her hand”, and “lifted her up”. Following the touch of the Lord’s hand upon her, “immediately the fever left her”. As a response to her healing, she then “arose and ministered unto them”.
What a wonderful event that pictures the touch of the Lord’s hand in our lives and its effects upon us…
We are all suffering from the sickness of the disease called “sin”. This disease is so ravaging to our systems that there is nothing we can do to save ourselves from its grip. Once contracted this disease ALWAYS results in death. It is so devastating that we are already considered dead by those who understand this disease and its results.
But then, we are touched by the hand of the Lord. He graciously does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. We are healed from this dreaded disease; we are given a clean bill of health and it is, as if, we are risen from the dead.
What is the natural, common sense response to the One who has given us back our life, health, security and a wonderful hope for tomorrow? To serve Him and His friends who to whom we have now become related, our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Does this description characterize our lives? By God’s grace we are all able to proclaim that we have been raised from spiritual death and are now living a life of service to Him!
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
