Matthew 8:15 15 He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him. (NIV)

Jesus heals us not only out of love for us, He heals us for us to be able to be His hands, feet, mouth and heart on this earth.  Notice Peter’s mother got up and began to wait on Him.  She didn’t take time to tell everyone she was healed.  She demonstrated her healing by her service.  We tend to so consumed with what we want Jesus to do for us that we minimize what He would like to do through us for others.  This is from our sinful state of selfishness.  Let us choose to put Jesus first in reality, not just in words or theory.  When we ask for healing, let our reason be so we can actively serve Him by allowing Him to serve and speak through us to those He brings our way.
