This morning we continue our series in the Gospel of Mark. We find Jesus performing a private healing of one of His disciple’s mother-in-law. News travels quickly and before long a crowd of needy desperate people are gathered at the door of the house. With divine power Jesus heals and delivers and heals and delivers some more. And just when there seems to be wonderful momentum for ongoing power ministry, Jesus seems to unwisely shift gears. But it is the shifting of gears that we find a necessary truth for today.
