Pastor Gary reminds us that Jesus has authority over not only us, but unclean spirits too. In the reading today Jesus rebukes an unclean spirit that knows who he is and is afraid. Jesus is like our big brother that we can call on to protect us.
Reading: Mark 1:21-28
They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another, “What is this? A new teaching—with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.”Mark 1:27,28 (NRSV)
