Majesty

today's reading.
Luke 9:37-45    On the next day, when they had come down from the mountain, a great crowd met him...

the blog.
I never get tired of reading the accounts of Jesus healing hurting people. Today it's a boy possessed by a demon that throws him on the ground in convulsions. When Jesus approaches the boy, He rebukes the demon and the restored boy is returned to his grateful father. How awesome is that? I love it, and I also love the final verse in this account. "And all were astonished at the majesty of God" (vs. 43). 

So what does God's majesty mean to you? How have you experienced God's majesty in your life? Tell us about it. Tami W.

P.S. If you’d like more details about the healing of this boy, take a look at the parallel accounts in Mark 9:14-29 and Matthew 17:14-21.
