This Sunday’s Gospel: January 31, 2021

This Sunday's Gospel

The takeaway that I gained from this Sunday’s Gospel is very simple, yet still profound. Jesus really is the Son of God. If you’re reading this blog, then chances are you believe this. You might think, “Well, obviously He’s the Son of God, Madeline!”

The point of this Gospel reading is that an unclean spirit recognized Jesus. a demon publicly acknowledged that Jesus is the Son of God. It’s amazing to know that even evil things cannot deny this truth. This reminds me of Philippians 2:10-11, which reads “at the name of Jesus, every knee should bend, of those in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Nobody can be neutral when it comes to Jesus. One way or another, we have to recognize that He is the Lord.

If demons can’t deny that Jesus is the Son of God, then we can’t deny Him either. We’re better than evil spirits, so what’s stopping us from acknowledging His identity and presence? Let’s proudly and joyfully proclaim that Jesus is Lord. Let’s let our lives reflect His glory and our identity as His disciples.

Stay radiant!
