Scurrying to Jesus

“They scurried about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to wherever they heard He was.” Mark 6:55



Wherever Jesus went, people followed. I like the word used in this translation: scurried. It means to hasten, rush, run. Even today, people have a tendency to crowd around certain people with a gift of healing, but the enemy tries to deceive us with fake healers and crying statues. Skepticism takes the upper hand, and we do not pray over people as much as we should. 



Should we not scurry to bring the sick to Jesus? For that is what praying over them means. It does not mean that we are the ones healing them so we need not be ashamed if nothing happens. Even the disciples experienced disappointment and had to ask Jesus why their prayers did not work. (Matthew 17:16) But they did not give up. They kept praying, scurrying to bring the sick to the attention of Jesus.
