Set Free to Serve
Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her. So he bent over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her. She got up at once and began to wait on them. [vs. 38-39 NIV] My unsanctified, Spirit-less reaction to this story has often been, “Typical. The woman is expected to serve the men. Is that why they asked Jesus to help her, so they would have someone available to serve them?” Ugly, I know….Spiritually, what underlying conditions hinder serving? Apathy? Bitterness? Fear? Is there anything in our lives that needs Jesus’ rebuke? He offers the same healing to us. He wants to set us free to serve.

I want MORE of Jesus!
In our walk with the Lord we find ourselves praying to Jesus, I want MORE of you! We are asking to have a deep encounter with Him. This prayer may be arising because we do not know what to do amid difficult times or a crisis when we do not know what to do.
