Matthew 8:14, 15 (Pt. 4)  Thought/Prayer: Seeking Him Out. Topics: 2 at end.

“When Jesus came into Peter’s house, he saw his wife’s mother lying sick with a fever. He touched her hand, and the fever left her. She got up and served him.  When evening came, they brought to him many possessed with demons. He cast out the spirits with a word, and healed all who were sick; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying: “’He took our infirmities, and bore our diseases.’” WEB (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

“When evening came”:  Many people sought out Jesus even in the evening.  He couldn’t escape the crowds who wanted to see him or ask something of Him.  In this passage, the ill came to Him.  We see that not all of the people who were sick could even bring themselves:  someone else had to help them.  “They”  . . . brought.  Imagine how wonderful it would be if you had a friend or family members who would go to the effort and take their time to bring you to Jesus.  We would be so eternally (yes, eternally) grateful to know that Jesus was Lord and to be healed by Him personally, in human flesh. 

Imagine being carried or being drawn on a makeshift pallet - - - out your door, through your town or around a mountain or hill.  Someone is doing this for you, someone who cares about you and cares for you.  Again, we would be eternally grateful.

In our lives today this scenario is played out daily.  A daughter takes an aging father to the doctor; a daughter-in-law cares for her spouse’s parent with trips to a physical therapist.  Family after family care for older folks with trips to nursing homes; stores for supplies; department stores for new pajamas or a nightgown to brighten an evening.

Yes, we know what this is like in our world.  But to think of it happening as it did those many years ago, with Jesus the focal point and Jesus the solution . . . it’s gratifying to think of it.  Jesus may not physically touch you or me with his gentle hands.  But we know that He still heals.  This is another entire area of service:  Prayer.  I’m sure many of those taken to Jesus with great time and effort were prayed for by those who loved them.

Lord, help us to realize how important it was that people be brought to You when you were on Earth, brought to You for healing.  Praises to you that you did heal them.  Help us to realize when it is that someone needs Your touch so badly, especially scared young women newly and suddenly pregnant.  Help us to bring them to You, Lord, for Your healing touch.

Topics:  Pray for wisdom when “taking” someone to Jesus through our testimony of His life in us.
