Casting Out Demons

Jesus just gave the word and people were cured of their demons. He touched them and cured them of physical disease and disability.

But I started to consider that we still refer to many illnesses as being demons. Some mental health issues are chemical and require drugs for healing. Most of us can’t do that. Some are so deep seated that they require a professional.

We can help drive out many demons. Maybe it starts with breakfast and listening. A weekly meet up for coffee. Maybe we just can’t say, “Be healed” and it happens. But I wonder how many people we could help with a little care.

Things our churches could do instead of dividing the sheep from the goats, labeling ourselves the sheep, and declaring the goats bad. Then we herd together every week and celebrate our sheepness.

Or, we could be like Jesus.
