Ephesians 4:32–5:8; Psalm 1:1-4, 6; Luke 13:10-17


On this Day of the Lord (Sabbath) a woman is raised up – resurrected. It is the most appropriate day. She is restored to health. The reference to being bound by Satan is not personal to this poor woman. It is the brokenness that afflicts all human life ever since evil got a hold in God’s good and healthy world. The uptight official is one more example. Jesus is doing for that woman what he came to do for all – to restore us.
