160623He went down to Capernaum, a city in Galilee, and was teaching them on the sabbath.  They were astounded at his teaching, because he spoke with authority.  In the synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out with a loud voice,  “Let us alone! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” When the demon had thrown him down before them, he came out of him without having done him any harm. They were all amazed and kept saying to one another, “What kind of utterance is this? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and out they come!” And a report about him began to reach every place in the region.  (Luke 4:31-37, NRSV)

With authority and power he commands unclean spirits!

Jesus has power to make anything and anyone do what He wants them to. So why then doesn’t He make us do what He needs us to do?

Jesus has the power to control every aspect of our lives and have us be His puppets, but that is not why we were created. We are not to be puppets, but brothers and sisters with Christ.

So live in the power that He yields over all creation and chose to live in the life He has created for you!
