In this winter season during which so many are dying from the flu, Scripture reminds us that Jesus reigns over both the physical and spiritual worlds, this week with the healing of Simon Peter's mother, last week with the healing of a demon-possessed man. Pastor David Ball explains that these afflictions strike because we live in a fallen world. We have gone our own way, and yet Jesus enters into our brokenness and brings healing and grace which we then are meant to take to others.
The Scripture Lessons for the Day were:
- 2 Kings 4:8-21, 32-37
