Galatians 3:7-14; Psalm 111:1-6; Luke 11:15-26

Someone stronger

Here’s a ‘conspiracy theory’ put around by Jesus’ opponents to discredit him. They say that Jesus only looks like a good man. In fact, they say, he’s in league with Satan. This is malicious fake news. But its greatest harm is to those self-assured promotors of it. They themselves are now entertaining demons who “will go in and set up house” with them. Satan is strong, but Jesus calls himself that ‘someone stronger’ who is able to attack and defeat Satan and free those imprisoned in that ‘house’.
