Jesus’s ministry continues in Mark chapter 1 as He goes about healing people. After providing protection to a man by casting out an unclean spirit, Mark tells us, “That evening at sundown they brought to him all who were sick or oppressed by demons. And the whole city was gathered together at the door. And he healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons.”
Jesus comes to us and He brings healing: not just physical healing, but spiritual and emotional healing as well. He does this by His power and also through people like us. What a gift in this world where so many are hurting in so many ways.
Thanks be to God that He draws us in and gathers us here in this place to receive His Word and gifts and healing through His Son. It’s good to be together in the Lord.
Reach in Prayer
Our prayers are with the family of Erwin Wergin, who was called home this past week. May God comfort this family with the promise of the resurrection through faith in Christ.
