Mark 1:21-25New Living Translation (NLT)
Jesus Casts Out an Evil Spirit
21 Jesus and his companions went to the town of Capernaum. When the Sabbath day came, he went into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real authority—quite unlike the teachers of religious law.
23 Suddenly, a man in the synagogue who was possessed by an evil spirit cried out, 24 “Why are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the Holy One of God!”
25 But Jesus reprimanded him. “Be quiet! Come out of the man,” he ordered.
Dear Father, Jesus knows the Father, and the Father knows Jesus. The Holy Spirit is my support and helper. Jesus has authority. Jesus is Holy. I am to be holy and pure. I am learning from you, Jesus. You are my Savior. You are Life. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
