Luke 4:31-37

On that day Jesus acted out the drama of God’s intentional love. He demonstrated the power of God to set things right. Jesus banished the forces that would degrade human experience and separate us from our Creator. Power struggles still ravage all of life, even the cosmos itself. Through our Risen Lord we are set free from the power of evil, and we are sent out, by his authority and in his name, to set things right. We, like his first disciples, remain amazed at what God can do.
