29 And soon after departing from the synagogue, they went into the house of Simon and Andrew, with James and John.
30 But the mother-in-law of Simon lay ill with a fever. And at once they told him about her.
31 And drawing near to her, he raised her up, taking her by the hand. And immediately the fever left her, and she ministered to them.
32 Then, when evening arrived, after the sun had set, they brought to him all who had maladies and those who had demons.
33 And the entire city was gathered together at the door.
34 And he healed many who were troubled with various illnesses. And he cast out many demons, but he would not permit them to speak, because they knew him.
35 And rising up very early, departing, he went out to a deserted place, and there he prayed.
36 And Simon, and those who were with him, followed after him.
37 And when they had found him, they said to him, "For everyone is seeking you."
38 And he said to them: "Let us go into the neighboring towns and cities, so that I may preach there also. Indeed, it was for this reason that I came."
39 And he was preaching in their synagogues and throughout all of Galilee, and casting out demons.
1 Corinthians 9:16-19, 22-23
16 For if I preach the Gospel, it is not glory for me. For an obligation has been laid upon me. And woe to me, if I do not preach the Gospel.
17 For if I do this willingly, I have a reward. But if I do this reluctantly, a dispensation is granted to me.
18 And what, then, would be my reward? So, when preaching the Gospel, I should give the Gospel without taking, so that I may not misuse my authority in the Gospel.
19 For when I was a free man to all, I made myself the servant of all, so that I might gain all the more.
22 To the weak, I became weak, so that I might gain the weak. To all, I became all, so that I might save all.
23 And I do everything for the sake of the Gospel, so that I may become its partner.
