“They stood there shouting, ‘What do you want with us, Son of God?”

Matthew 8:28-34

Several of the readings this week show us the power of Jesus. In today’s reading, we see how He even has power over demons. The demons knew that Jesus had power over them. He drove them out so that the possessed men were healed.

What do we think about evil and the work of the devil in the world? Do we not believe in the devil? Do we think that evil is more powerful than the goodness of God? Mother Mary Mackillop said, “Never see a need without doing something about it.” We can do something when we see evil. We can pray for Jesus to empower us and to give us the wisdom to see how we can drive the devil out of the situation and let God take over.
