Dear Friend in the Lord,

Divine Power: In today’s Gospel, Jesus taught with great Wisdom and expelled demons with His Divine Power.  When we live in the Peace and Joy of Christ, and our love and compassion is Christ-like, we will undoubtedly experience the divine power of Jesus in all that we do, say and live.

  Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

Mark 1:21b-27

On the Sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and began to teach. And his teaching made a deep impression on them because, unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority.

In their synagogue there was a man with an unclean spirit, and he shouted, ‘What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are: the Holy One of God.’ But Jesus rebuked it saying, ‘Be quiet! Come out of him!’ And the unclean spirit threw the man into convulsions and with a loud cry went out of him.

The people were so astonished that they started asking one another what it all meant, saying, ‘Here is a teaching that is new, and with authority behind it: he gives orders even to unclean spirits and they obey him.’
