15 Jan 2019: Power of the Word


Tuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time

Reading 1: Heb. 2: 5-12; Gospel: Mk. 1: 21-28

The gospel of the day testifies to the power of God’s word. We read, “Jesus rebuked him and said, “Quite! Come out of him!” The unclean spirit convulsed him with loud cry came out of him (vv. 25-26).

Let us take a moment to meditate upon the power of God’s Word. Jesus simply spoke what He willed that is the evil spirit to come out of the man, and what He willed happened.

We as children of God is given the greatest gift in the form of God’s word. But how many of us really trust in the Word and take refuge in it. The gospel challenges us to analyses our knowledge and closeness to the Word.
