Jesus Christ Cured Peter’s Mother-in-Law
People asked Christ to help Peter’s mother-
in-law because she had a high fever.
We learn prayer for others is effective.
Christ’s compassion was not an elective.
Christ worked cures in a particular way.
“He laid his hands on every one of them.”
Jesus took care of individuals.
He taught us have concern for everyone.
Jesus cured people immediately.
Jesus did not have anonymity.
The people wanted Jesus Christ to stay.
Other cities need Him to come their way.
Quiet life without strife is not for me.
I have a need to recite poetry.
