All were amazed (at the teaching and healing power of Jesus) and asked one another, “What is this? A new teaching with authority. He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.” Mk_1:21-28
God’s power does not show itself in an ability to crush others. God’s power does not show itself in exaggerated glamor or sensationalist propaganda. Jesus taught with authority. He knew God to the core of His being and expressed that wisdom without reference to who knew what before Him. Jesus expelled the demons of uncertainty, the demons of lying, cheating, hating and sinfulness with just a Word. And the people were astonished and amazed. When we get to know Jesus, beloved. When we know Him to the core of our being, we too will be able to share His Love with everyone we meet. THAT’s authority! And That’s power. And Jesus would love nothing more than for us to have it too!
