Scripture

Mark 1:29-42 As soon as they left the synagogue, they went into Simon and Andrew’s house with James and John. Simon’s mother-in-law was lying in bed with a fever, and they told him about her at once. So he went to her, took her by the hand, and raised her up. The fever left her, and she began to serve them.

When evening came, after the sun had set, they brought to him all those who were sick and demon-possessed. The whole town was assembled at the door, and he healed many who were sick with various diseases and drove out many demons. And he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.

Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he got up, went out, and made his way to a deserted place; and there he was praying. Simon and his companions searched for him, and when they found him they said, “Everyone is looking for you.” And he said to them, “Let’s go on to the neighboring villages so that I may preach there too. This is why I have come.”

He went into all of Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons. Then a man with leprosy came to him and, on his knees, begged him, “If you are willing, you can make me clean.” Moved with compassion, Jesus reached out his hand and touched him. “I am willing,” he told him. “Be made clean.” Immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean.

Engage

Healing is one of the very first things Jesus does in Mark’s Gospel. We hear stories of Jesus healing those with physical and spiritual hurts. This is quite simply what Jesus does, and a large part of who he is. He shows us his power as he extends God’s good gifts to include everyone, no matter what their situation. God is everywhere—always on the move—to heal our hurts inside and out. When Jesus died and rose, He healed the world from all its pain forever. Jesus’ healing power is all around us. Engage in one of the following activities to celebrate the tools and people in the world He works through to bring healing.

  • Write a thank you note or draw a picture for a healthcare worker in your community.
  • Put together a first aid kit for your home, car, or someone in need.
  • Learn about your immune system and how God has made our bodies to heal.
Pray + Bless

Pray: Our Great Physician, Thank you for the gift of healing. Thank you for taking away the hurts of the world through your death and resurrection. Help us to share your healing power with the world. Amen.

Make the sign of the cross on the forehead of each person in your family and say, "May the Great Physician keep you always in His care."
