The Lord’s Ministry of Spiritual Healing in Mark’s Gospel


In Genesis 3 we read of how Adam and Eve listened to the devil’s lie, sinned, and thereby lost their and all humanity’s close relationship with the Lord God. The Bible makes clear that the devil exists, but he is a defeated foe, and we need to have the right attitude about him and his ways. C.S. Lewis, in his book The Screwtape Letters, said this, “There are two equal and opposite errors into which our race can fall about the devils. One is to disbelieve in their existence. The other is to believe, and to have an excessive and unhealthy interest in them” (p.9).  Over the next few weeks we are going to consider:


ü  The Lord’s total defeat of the devil;

ü  The Lord’s ministry of spiritual healing as a demonstration of His absolute authority over the devil; and 

ü  How the Lord’s actions should affect how we think and live. 


Please prayerfully read the passages listed below. I would value your prayers as I seek to hear what the Lord wants me to share. Thank you & God Bless, Kumar
