Fourth Sunday in Ordinary TimeMark 1:21-28
In today’s gospel, Jesus teaches in the synagogue “as one having authority.” The man with the unclean spirit was healed. He convulsed and the unclean spirit came out of him. Fear of the Lord. The unclean spirit recognized the holiness and authority of Jesus and obeyed him. Do we have that same fear of the Lord? Are we quick to respond to Jesus? Do we obey immediately?
May we ask the Lord today to increase humility in us so that we may grow in fear of the Lord, that wonderful gift of the Holy Spirit.
