Let’s not fool ourselves about who our real enemy is. Most of the time we aren’t privy to what’s really going on in the spiritual realm. We’re engaged in a war of a much larger scale than we see day-to-day.
After recruiting his first disciples, Jesus takes them to the synagogue in the city of
, where that
unseen war became visible for a brief moment. When a demon-possessed man tries
to tell Jesus what to do, he immediate rebukes the evil spirit and tells him
what to do. To everyone’s astonishment, the demon has to obey what Jesus says. Capernaum
The reality is, we all have to obey Jesus. We may shake and scream. We may try to tell Jesus what to do. But in the end, we have to obey him. The question isn’t, “Is Jesus Lord of your life?” The question is, “Have you acknowledged that fact?”
According to the Bible, one day everyone in heaven and on earth and under the earth will have to bow the knee and proclaim that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father. How much better to gladly acknowledge his place in the universe, and in your life, here and now.
