I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).

Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflection for January 14, Tuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time, Mark 1:21-28

+ + + + +  + +
My Reflection:
When Jesus went to the synagogue He encountered a man possessed by an evil spirit. Then after conversing with the evil spirit Jesus drove it away from the man.

There’s always the presence of evil within us if we are not faithful to Jesus. It hides deep in our being it only comes out when the environment is conducive for it to come out. For example, when there’s temptation for us to sin and do something immoral. When the opportunity presents itself the devil that hides within us will now suddenly take control of us until it accomplishes its evil will.

Why does the presence of the evil one hide within us? It hides for the reason that we give it space, in other words it hides within us because we consent with it most especially when the situation to do evil is favorable.

However, if we really desire to completely extricate ourselves from any form of evil possession. We actually could with the help of Jesus, how would we do it? We must get closer to Jesus we must always ask Jesus to weed out and to completely overpower the evil that resides within us.

The very same presence of evil that prompts us to commit sin. - Marino J. Dasmarinas1
