The Miracle Of The Healing Of Peter’s Mother-in-Law

Jesus performed countless numbers of miracles. In fact, scripture states that no amount of books could contain the documentation of them all. He healed many people. He raised them from the dead. He drove out demons. No situation was exactly the same except for the fact that someone was in need.

Lesson in Gratitude

In Mark 1:29–31, Matthew 8:14–15, and Luke 4:38–39, it is written that Jesus and the disciples went to the house of Peter and Andrew after church (synagogue) one day. This probably was not an unusual event. Even today we might go and hang out with friends after church. It is a time of fellowship and bonding. But this particular day was a little bit different.

Personal Application

What do we do when our prayers are answered and a need is met? What do we do as relief sets in and our mind is not focused on the pain anymore? Do you jump for joy and then go about our activities as though nothing happened? Do we linger in sympathy? Or do we begin to look for ways to serve God and express our gratitude?
