Wednesday of the Twenty-second Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus' disciples freely brought their troubles to him because they found him ready and able to deal with any complexity, affliction, or sickness which they encountered. When Simon Peter brought Jesus to his home for the Sabbath meal, his mother-in-law was instantly healed because Jesus heard Simon's prayer. Jesus could not avoid drawing a crowd wherever he went. No one who asked Jesus for help was left dissatisfied. Jesus' numerous healings and exorcisms demonstrated the power and authority of his word, the "good news of the kingdom of God." When he rebuked the fever, it right away left. When he rebuked the demons, they left as well. Why did the demons tremble at Jesus' presence? They recognized that he was the Christ, the Son of God and that he had power to destroy their kingdom by releasing those bound by it. Jesus came to set us free from bondage to sin and evil. Jesus gave the people the word of God and he healed them physically as well as spiritually. We can never intrude upon God nor exhaust his generosity and kindness. He is ever ready to give to those who earnestly seek him out.
Word of the Day...
2 Timothy 1:13-14 What you heard from me, keep as the pattern of sound teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you - guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us.
Prayer ...
Help us, O God, to not compromise your truth to legalism or license. We want to live, and show others how to live, a holy life. We want to share your grace and mercy with them. But most of all Father, we want them to join with us in welcoming Jesus when he returns. Please empower us by your Spirit to see through falsehood and error so we can protect and live your truth. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

38And he arose and left the synagogue, and entered Simon's house. Now Simon's mother-in-law was ill with a high fever, and they besought him for her. 39 And he stood over her and rebuked the fever, and it left her; and immediately she rose and served them. 40 Now when the sun was setting, all those who had any that were sick with various diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on every one of them and healed them. 41 And demons also came out of many, crying, "You are the Son of God!" But he rebuked them, and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ. 42 And when it was day he departed and went into a lonely place. And the people sought him and came to him, and would have kept him from leaving them; 43 but he said to them, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for I was sent for this purpose." 44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Judea.
