You are the Son of God
  • Hebrews 7:25--8:6
  • Psalm 40:7-10,17
  • Mark 3:7-12

The Lord Jesus faced rejection from the high priests and pharisees. He was not accepted for who he was. Many believed he was as same as many other prophets who prophesied in the Old Testament times. Only a few believed him to be the Son of God. Today’s Gospel proclamation shows how Jesus was proclaimed as the Son of God even by unclean spirits. The Lord Jesus was known among the people, mainly for healing, and large crowds followed him believing that they will be healed from their sicknesses. They do not seem to have understood the importance of spiritual healing over physical healing. In contrast, unclean spirits were aware that they have no power over the Lord Jesus, and they can no longer be in existence. No matter how hard we try, we are incapable of overcoming sin. That is why Jesus saved us by the power of the cross and resurrection. His power continues through the high-priestly intercession taking place at the right had of the Father. How blessed are we.

Prayer: Abba Father, thank you for the gift of salvation. Amen.
