Biblical People: Susanna (2)

Susanna is only mentioned once in the Bible. It’s by Doctor Luke in his biography of Jesus. Jesus casts a demon out of her, as he does for Joanna and many others.

Regardless of what we understand this to mean, Susanna, in response to Jesus removing her affliction, helps support him and his work here on earth.

While Jesus doesn’t demand we do things for him out of gratitude for what he does for us, he certainly deserves our tangible acts of appreciation. 

What do we do to show Jesus our love for him?
