Keep your eyes on Jesus
Jesus went to Simon's house and straight away they asked him to heal his mother in law. People heard about this and come to Jesus. Jesus then got early to pray, and after this moved away from the fame to preach the gospel to new villages. We should come to Jesus straight away with our problems. If people come to Meadgate to see Jesus, our job is to love and welcome them. Also to focus on delivering the good news to them. Jesus will do the rest!
