Epiphany 5 – Focussed on the Mission –
It is reported in Mark's gospel that Jesus was a very successful healer, with many sick people cured and many released from demon possession. In the scientific and rationalist society to which we belong, it can be hard to come to terms with the idea of demons. However, in today's Western society there are plenty of demons around us and among us – they are likely to involve drug addiction, gambling, sex, food, slavery, racism, corruption, and more. People possessed by such demons are in immense need, as are their victims. As followers of Jesus, we need to follow his example by quietly spending some time with God, to seek out what needs to be done as we go about God's business of loving and healing.
Mark 1: 29-39; 1 Corinthians 9: 16-23
