Jesus brings Good News to households of faith! This was our proclamation last weekend as we kicked off our “What Jesus Brings” series journeying through Mark chapter 1. This week we’ll talk about how Jesus brings protection to those who hear and believe the good news. Our reading from Mark tells us how Jesus cast an unclean spirit out of a man, providing physical and spiritual protection for him. Does Jesus still do this today? What kind of protection does he offer us? Our reading from Ephesians answers this question: “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.” (Ephesians 6:10-11) It is good to be together–protected–in the Lord.
