The power of the words of Jesus 

New Testament: Mark 1.25–26

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 1.23–45 on February 17, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

By Don Ruhl 

When God created in the beginning, he simply uttered the command and things appeared out of nothing. He said let there be light and there was light. 

Similarly, after a man with an unclean spirit confronted Jesus, watch what Jesus did when he spoke to the unclean spirit: 

But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!” And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him.

– Mark 1.25–26 

Can you tell me whether there is a difference between God commanding light and it appeared, and Jesus commanding an unclean spirit to come out of a man and it happened? 

Jesus has the power of God. What does that tell you about Jesus? Do you know who you read about in the Gospel According to Mark?
