After casting a demon out of a man, Jesus and four of His disciples went to the home of Simon and Andrew, and James and John were along too (Mark 1:29).
However, there was a problem,
“But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick with a fever, and they told Him about her at once. So He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and immediately the fever left her. And she served them” (Mark 1:30-31).
First, Peter, the alleged first pope, had a wife, disqualifying him from being a so-called pope. Second, Peter’s mother-in-law was gravely ill with a fever. Third, Jesus healed her simply by taking her hand and lifting her up. Fourth, she did not wait to be served, but served, recovering instantly from something that normally takes days.
Let us imitate her spirit, for we need more people who seek to serve rather than being served, especially after they have been blessed.
