He did it for them. He commanded the impure spirit to leave the man, which it did, but shook him violently on the way. After the service, a group of influential people were overheard near the door ‘tut-tutting’ and saying they should never invite him back. They didn’t like that sort of thing here.
They left church and He had been invited to Simon and Andrew’s house for Sunday lunch. James and John had also been invited so it was a full house. The thing was, Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed sick, and Jesus, having already preached that morning and dealt with a demon-possessed man, was asked if He could help. Of course, He did. The fever left her and she made the dinner.
That evening after sunset, He was inundated with all the sick and, it seemed, the man who had been released from the demon, was so excited, he found everybody else he knew with the same problem and brought them to Jesus. In fact, anybody who was anybody and everybody who was nobody, presented themselves at the door. There was no way she would have enough tea to go around, but she never remembered another time in her life she had seen so many people around her door.
The town was never the same. Those who had been demon-possessed went home sane and free from mental anguish for the first time in years. The sick were healed long into the night. It was a day of celebration and controversy, an exhausting day; a busy day.
