Luke 9v37-45 - The demon-possessed boyDownload:
Some days are glorious. They are “mountain-top” days. Peter and James and John had just had the mountain-top day. They saw the glory of Jesus. They saw Moses and Elijah, and heard the voice of God himself. Peter had said, “let us stay here!” Christians sometimes have great days in the Spirit when they see much more of the glory and love of Jesus. But, such days are few in this life. Below, there is a world of sin and suffering to face. Jesus took them down the mountain. He must continue on the path to the cross.

37And it came to pass, that on the next day, when they were come down from the hill, much people met him. 38And, behold, a man of the company cried out, saying, Master, I beseech thee, look upon my son: for he is mine only child. 39And, lo, a spirit taketh him, and he suddenly crieth out; and it teareth him that he foameth again, and bruising him hardly departeth from him. 40And I besought thy disciples to cast him out; and they could not. 41And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither. 42And as he was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him. And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. 43And they were all amazed at the mighty power of God. But while they wondered every one at all things which Jesus did, he said unto his disciples, 44Let these sayings sink down into your ears: for the Son of man shall be delivered into the hands of men. 45But they understood not this saying, and it was hid from them, that they perceived it not: and they feared to ask him of that saying.
