Matthew 8:14-15 ” When Jesus came to Peter’s house, He saw Peter’s mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on Him.”

It says Jesus touched her and she recovered.  It was through that gentle touch, Jesus spoke volumes…He voiced love and concern for her…and He spoke health and healing into her body.  And it was out of a grateful heart, the woman got up and  served Jesus and the rest of the men.  Now, you may have never been raised up out of a death-bed before, but the same grateful heart this woman had should be yours.  Why you ask?   In Romans 5:8 it tells us, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”   So in a way you’ve also been raised up from a death-bed…for you were once dead in your sins.  But through God’s great love for you, a way was made.  And Jesus touched you and made you whole…so how can you be anything but grateful?
