“What is this? A new teaching! With authority he commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.”
With authority!! An authority that even commands the unclean! An authority that makes them confess that Jesus is the Holy One of God! And I’ll be darned if they don’t obey Him!! But we are far from unclean. We are redeem; we are God’s very own. If the unclean can confess to the power and authority of Jesus, how much more are we the clean who have the Holy Spirit in us to cry out louder and proclaim the supremacy of Christ in our lives.
So what is this? It’s a new teaching: a teaching of obedience in God, a belief in the True One our Lord Jesus Christ and the profession of our faith in He who saves.
