Jesus still heals!
We are a world that is hurting. The Pandemic of 2020 has left a terrible mark on our people. There is so much death, there is so much poverty and hunger, there is so much despair, yet Jesus speaks to us through our hurts and pain.
In the Gospel reading for today, Mark 1:21-28, St. Mark only records for us a brief statement of Jesus for us to meditate on.
“Be silent and come out of him!” Mark 1:25
In this early part of Jesus’ Ministry, the hearers in the Synagogue were impressed by His words but the demon knew Him and knew His purpose.
“I know who you are, the Holy One of God” Mark 1:24
It might seem strange but let us use these words of the demon and call on Jesus more earnestly now than ever. He will cast out any demon that we are struggling with. Jesus will bring order in our chaotic time. Total Trust in the Lord!
