In the presence of Jesus.

Series: The Gospel of Luke: Settled in Spirit | Week 3: I Didn't Ask for This

Read Luke 4:33-37

1. Imagine this scene in your mind. What stands out to you about what this evil spirit knows about Jesus?
2. What part does the man with the evil spirit play in this story?
3. How much power does the evil spirit have in the presence of Jesus?

1. Spiritual forces of evil still exist today. The good news is they are powerless in the presence of Jesus! Whatever it is that’s opposing you – shame, guilt, bad habits, addictions – bring them all to the presence of Jesus now. Thank Him for His victory.
2. Jesus meets people, heals people, saves people and gives people purpose when they aren’t even looking for it. Prayer is a powerful weapon against the attacks of the enemy. Ask God to meet you in the places you don’t even know you need Him right now.
