Saved from a Robber

“And he cured many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons; and he would not permit the demons to speak, because they knew him.”
Mark 1:34

I have to watch this video over and over, allow its message to speak to me. For one, the place where it happened was very ordinary – a store or gift shop. Second, those who were involved in the crisis were very ordinary people doing ordinary tasks or chores that closing hours of the day – a saleswoman, a customer, a silent CCTV on the ceiling, and a robber. Third, the crisis was resolved by simply invoking the name above every other name – JESUS. Watch how the “demon” in the robber “hid his tail,” reminiscent of how Jesus during his 40 days in the desert exhausted the devil in tempting him. One preacher put it in another way: “the devil left bleeding” after Jesus used the double-edged sword that is the Word. Care to watch and learn from the boldness of this woman’s simple faith that in turn influenced the one customer she had?
