About Today Readings

Hebrews 2:5-12. You gave your Son authority over all your creation – Psalm 8:2-5, 9. Mark 1:21-28.

He taught them with authority

The authority of God is not like the authority we know of humans. It is not an authority that oppresses, that bends others to a lower point in order to elevate itself, it does not have to justify itself into existence, it does not have to build up an image in order to be seen. The authority of God never imposes itself. But it is something we innately recognise when it presents itself. In the times when everything falls away; when the banalities of our lives give way to what is essential, often as a result of some pain or catastrophe, we come to know that God’s authority speaks and dwells in all things.
