Mark 1:29-39. Jesus continues to preach and drive demons out

Taya-Kilos, Commitment-Action

Something fascinating about how Jesus did His healing is that He tells those who He has healed not to tell others what happened. Why would this be the case?

This goes against conventional management, marketing, and political wisdom, which would encourage self-promotion or promotion of products and services. Didn’t the human Jesus want to be popular?

My interpretation is that Jesus perhaps did not want His person to be the focus; what matters is that He has healed, and good has come out of His encounter with the sick.

When Jesus asks us to have faith, perhaps the deeper message is to go beyond the flesh and seek out the Word and the Truth. Not to fall in love with mere appearances and passively wait for a human messiah, but to act out of love and strive to be more virtuous. Not to be merely amazed by miracles of a supernatural being, but to be inspired to be our own little miracles for our neighbors.

Jesus does not want yes-men, but whole persons who can dialogue and act with Him.
