And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him. (Mark 1:27).
Today’s Morsel: Many people in Jesus' day followed Him to see what He would do. Even Herod had heard about Him and wanted to see a miracle. Granted, we don’t follow signs, signs follow us, but many even today do follow after signs. When Jesus cast out the devil and would not allow them to speak, some asked, “What thing is this? What new doctrine is this?” Because they had never seen it before, they wanted to know. Why do people get mesmerized by the miraculous? What is it about miracles that draws people to see? The greatest miracle you will ever see is what Jesus has done in your life. That’s what should keep you following Him, because you know that no one else could have done what He’s done in you.
Sing: He touched me, Oh, He touched me, and oh the joy that floods my soul; Something happened and now I know, Jesus touched me and made me whole.
Thought For Today: He still works miracle if you let Him.
