Give Jesus A Chance!
TUESDAY OF THE FIRST WEEK
Readings: Heb 2:5-12; Ps 8:2ab and 5, 6-7a, 7b-9 (R.v.7a); Mark 1:21b-28
In Matt 28:18, Jesus exclaimed, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” That is not just a mere claim because when Jesus was exercising his ministry, the people could feel that authority oozing from him (Mark 1:22).
Even the evil spirit perceived it and cried out, “Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God” (Mark 1:23-24). Why not! Did he not walk over the sea (Mark 6:49) which is the seat of power of the evil one?
The people who saw him bore this witness of him, “With authority he commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him” (Mark 1:27). He also has the authority to change your situation to the better if only you can give him a chance.
Listen to him now! He is telling that your ugly situation that has given you sleepless nights, “Be silent, and come out of him” (Mark 1:25).
May you receive consolation and transformation in the presence of the Lord, today and beyond, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
I wish you a grace-filled day. It is well with you.
