REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS The God Who Can Heal and Save
Jesus’ disciples freely brought their troubles to him because they found him ready and able to deal with any difficulty, affliction, or sickness which they encountered. When Simon brought Jesus to his home, his mother-in-law was instantly healed because Jesus heard Simon’s prayer. Do you allow Jesus to be the Lord and Healer in Your life, family, and community? Approach him with expectant faith. God’s healing power restores us not only to health but to active service and care of others. There is no trouble he does not want to help us with and there is no bondage he can’t set us free from. Do you take your troubles to him with expectant faith that he will help you? In our search for Christ, we should not allow problems to undermine our search for intimacy with Jesus. Jesus wants us to always be by his side just as the apostles were so that wherever we go or wherever we are, we have Jesus as a companion. Let the worries of this world not be our only reason for God.
