Grace and Peace to you.
He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up.
Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.
Bible stories are tales of transformation. God heals us, forgives us, calls us, gives us new vision, turns us into new people. Grace doesn’t just come to us; it flows through us and keeps moving. It leads us from being to becoming, and from receiving blessing to blessing others. When Jesus heals Peter’s mother-in-law, she doesn’t just feel better: she gets up and serves them. Her healing goes somewhere.
Whatever the Good News is in your life, it’s not just that God is nice. God has changed you. God has acted decisively in your life to heal, to bless, to save, to create, to give life. And that blessing wants to move on.
• How has God blessed you, healed you, changed you?
• How will you pass on that blessing today?
God’s grace flows through you for the sake of the healing of the world.
