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 Sidon, 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)
Some notes I jotted down on this passage:
WHEN THE KINGDOM IS AT WORK, THE MARGINS SHOW UP. We tend to want the healthy, the intelligent, the hard working… but often what shows up are the sick, the poor, the incapable. LOVE THE MARGINS.
