Going to Home

“Then He got up and left the synagogue, and entered Simon’s home. Now Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Him to help her.”
(Luke 4:38)

Jesus had ministered in a synagogue, but he ended up in someone's home healing and touching their family. That is the way of Jesus. He doesn't merely want to be present in our religious institutions, meetings and services - he wants to present in the intimate settings of family life. He wants to enter there and make a significant difference.

Whenever I meet someone, I need to think of their whole family network and hopefully, get into their home. It is there that the work of Jesus truly begins.
