He went down with them and stood on a level place. A large crowd of his disciples was there and a great number of people from all over Judea, from Jerusalem, and from the coastal region around Tyre and Sodon, who had come to hear him and to be healed of their diseases. Those troubled by impure spirits were cured, and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all. (Luke 6:17-19)
When my oldest was in middle school we went to a Christian Rock concert. I was comfortable until the music began and everyone cheered, danced, and flooded the stage area as if we were at a Grateful Dead concert. It was rowdy, and I quickly became claustrophobic.
Jesus isn’t on a stage. Picture Him standing on a level place lower than the huge crowd standing on the rolling hills or mountains surrounding him so everyone can see. He offers healing, more desirable than the best of music. Healing power explodes from Jesus, and the crowd swarms Him. He restores humans from physical and mental ailments and then restores peace so everyone can hear Him preach the Sermon on the Mount.
Dearest wonderful Father, send Your Holy Spirit to touch me with Your power to heal me mentally and physically, ridding me of ideas the enemy puts in my head. Snatch the enemy from my body and prepare me to hear Your message from the Sermon on the Mount.
