Jesus: The Ultimate Action Hero
The Hero’s Secret Strength
It was a wonderful day of seeing the kingdom of God reach out and take hold of the victims of the kingdom of Satan and free them of sickness and possession by evil forces bent only on violence and destruction.
As we’ll see in a moment, the demands of urgent ministry were about to be pitted against the strategic plan of His life.
It seems plausible that word of the healings had spread even further and that the demands of the evening past were now turning into the opportunities of the present.
In this case the thing that brought the Father glory was to have the Son continue to preach the gospel because short term healing without salvation is meaningless.
Healing from sin is not a demand we make for fairness, it is a request we make from a humble position on our knees, knowing we are doomed and also knowing Jesus is the only chance we have.
God is moved with compassion and will stop whatever He is doing to respond to a humble prayer for healing; even it meant putting off something else.
The conclusion is really simple: Stay in communication with God for your small part today in His great plan for eternity, not letting your surroundings move you away from that direction.
