Scripture Struck @ Mk 1:21-28

The Teaching of Jesus

By profession Jesus was a carpenter. He learned the trade from Joseph. As a boy he was trained to master the skill for a living. He was a carpenter’s son.

But Jesus decided to teach. More than a career, it was his real calling. He wanted to teach people how to live. He had no previous experience or training. Who he is, was sufficient credential. Jesus was the Apostle of the Father.

His words carried full authority. Words were enough to effect what he wanted. Jesus healed. Jesus preached. Jesus was a man of power and wisdom. Even demons trembled.

Yet when it comes to the human heart, Jesus has to knock. Patiently. Continually. He has no authority over me unless I willingly submit. Faith is that willingness to surrender. It is love that disposes us to obey!
