Once again we find Jesus teaching in a Synagogue, where He saw a man with a withered hand. The Religious watched, wanting to accuse Him of Working on the Sabbath.
He called the man forth and asked if it was lawful to do good on the Sabbath? To save a life or to kill? They failed to answer, He was Grieved because of the hardness of their hearts.
He then healed him, the Religious plotted to kill Him, but He slipped away. (Mark 3:1-6)
Multitudes of people followed Him, seeking healings, and deliverance from devils. The unclean again called out He was the Son of God. He once again told them to hold their peace, He called Himself the Son of Man. (Mark 3:7-12)
He then called the 12, and gave them the power to heal the sick and cast out demons. (Mark 3:13-15)
Do we see the Ministry that was left to us to fulfill, are we disciples? Followers of Christ? Are we healing the sick and casting out devils? No? Why not?
Why do we have such a problem believing that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever? (Hebrews 13:8)
The mission has not changed, the tools are available to those who seek them, and will use them for God’s Glory.
Why did Jesus call Himself Son of Man and not acknowledge He was the Son of God. Everyone knew Him as a man, filled with the Holy Spirit, who could do things mortals could not. Including giving Himself up as a sacrifice for us all.

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
