These words are good to underline in Matthew 8 and think on: Healing. Calm. Instantly. Immediately.
We live in a tired time. It’s hard to think of doing one more thing. So. It’s interesting to read about the work of Jesus in chapter 8 in Matthew’s book . . .
Jesus, the Light of the world, demonstrated the connection of healing and calm . . . as an action with people he met . . . instantly and immediately.
We think of the connection with technology as instant and immediate.
It’s not as common to think of a connection with one another as healing and calming.
The inside look into this chapter in the Bible reveals the intention to heal and calm. When you get down to it . . . these two elements are derived from . . . peace. When Jesus left peace behind.
Jesus said I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart in John 15:27, NLT.
Be the one who connects with healing and calm. Let peace be the gift you leave behind, it’s an important piece of being light in the world.
