Sep. 4, 2018 (Luke 4:31-37)

This week, our weekday gospels have shifted to Luke, so we begin Jesus’ public ministry all over again. Luke begins with Jesus preaching in the synagogue at Nazareth using a text from the prophet Isaiah. Yesterday, we heard that sermon. Now, we hear how Jesus drives out a demon. We may look at our world today and feel like the demons, evil, is winning. We can’t become dismayed by it all. We need to overcome evil, even evil in our own church, by doing good. We must begin with doing the right ourselves.
