Matthew 4:24. Fame 17 Dec 2022
Mat 4:24 His fame spread throughout Syria, and those who were suffering from diseases and painful complaints of one kind or another, the possessed, epileptics, the paralyzed, were all brought to him, and he cured them.
As you can see: the good news moved fast. But not to Jerusalem, the center of the religious life.
He cured all the sick. By times I am wondering how the people in the time of Jesus lived. Did they get old? How did the people deal with painful sicknesses? Without hospitals and social security.
We see Jesus involved with the pain of the people. But what happened? Does Jesus still heal people? And if not, why not?
Father God, why did the miracles of Jesus end? What is the good news for today?
In what forms do I myself spread 'good news'? What shows that I am a disciple of Jesus?
