(St. Mark 2:1) says “And again he (Jesus) entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.”
This house that the people heard that Jesus was in was Peter’s house. However, the question I propose to you all: Is He in your house? The truth is that you can tell when Jesus is in the house because of the way the family interacts. When Jesus is in the house husbands and wives talk to each other instead of bickering and fighting. When Jesus is in the house divorce or separation is never an option because the two understand that God hates divorce. Thus, he expects the two to remain one until death do us part. When Jesus is in the house the children are taught not to disrespect or talk back to their parent’s. When Jesus is in the house fathers and mothers find the time to spend with their kids to see what’s going on in their lives. In fact, when Jesus is in the house the family pulls together during difficult times. When Jesus is in the house peace, love and the joy of the Lord abounds. You see saints even as it began to circulate throughout the community that Jesus was at Peter’s house, the same can be said for our own homes today. Meaning that when Jesus is really in our lives and homes we won’t have to broadcast it; we won’t have to walk around with our bible, neither will we have to stand on a street corner and shout it out because people will be able to tell. They’ll be able to tell in how we carry ourselves, in how we conduct our affairs, even in how our children carry themselves. Thus, the light of Jesus will be on display wherever we go. Hence, I conclude with what I started with: Is Jesus in your house? Don’t be so quick to say yes. Think prayerfully.
God Bless You.
