Mark 5: the Lion roars

Such a juxtaposition. The pathetic, helpless torture of a man at the hands of 2,000 demons, day and night cutting himself and howling amid the tombs. The sudden desperation of a man of high earthly position who has just realized he is powerless to save his stricken daughter. The long, slow bleed of chronic illness.

And the Master's commands, sharp as scalpels:

"Come out of the man, unclean spirit!"

"Talitha, cumi!"

"Be healed."

And they do; she does; she is. Just like that. Behold our Lion and Deliverer. Glad I'm on His team.
