He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up, and the fever left her, and she began to serve them (Mark 29:31). Psychosomatic healing takes time; Jesus’ healings were instantaneous.
If we endure, we will also reign with him. If we disown him, he will also disown us (2 Tim. 2:12). Both God and his Son, Jesus, possess moral purity, justice and faithfulness.
