Unusual Repercussions

A father, in Mark 9, brought his possessed son to Jesus. After the spirit was kicked out, the boy was pale as a corpse, so people started saying, “He’s dead.”  Here’s another equipping insight in this scenario: sometimes participation in a Kingdom Power exploit may set off unusual repercussions or seemingly unending ripples around you! After all the clashes and outbursts and kicking and screaming already, the aftermath continued.  Most of the people there were fearful and mouthing as if Jesus had just failed and ended up with a dead child.  However, like Jesus, the important thing is to stay on task.  He took the boy by the hand and raised him and he got up.  The anticipation was fulfilled and the participation was complete and Father’s business was finished.
