Law Sickens–Grace Heals by Travis Bryan III

“But Simon’s wife’s mother lay sick of a fever, and anon they tell him of her.” Mark 1:30

Notice the mother-in-law was sick.  Living “in law” or “under law” makes one sick with sin.”  Why?  The mosaic law arouses sinful passions.  Rom 5:20; 7:5.  Human effort will not overcome this curse of a plague wrought thru Moses at Sinai.  Gal 3:3, 10-13.  Only resurrection life and power can overcome the sinful nature and “the law of sin and death.”  Rom 8:2-4.  Only by Christ, the Great Physician, can the curse of the law be removed. 

The sickest of all were the Chief Priests and Pharisees.  They were totally unaware of their terminal illness.
Jesus told them “the harlots will go into the kingdom of God before you.”

So Jesus went to her bed, took her hand, and RAISED HER UP.  The fever left her, and she began serving them.  Mk 1:31.

Only resurrection can heal sin.
