4th Sunday in Ordinary Time – B Reflection
Today’s Gospel demonstrates the power and
authority of Jesus as he expels an unclean spirit
from a man and heals him. People look at him
with admiration for he spoke with authority and
power. Hidden in the Gospel story is the unspoken
question: Will we listen to him? Will we choose to
be part of his world, the Kingdom of God which
Jesus is bringing into our midst?
