Today we read what the fuss was all about with the birth of Jesus Christ. While no one knew Jesus was the Messiah at the time, there was very little uncertainty about His power and willingness to help the needy. Mark 1:34 sums it up, and Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He drove out many demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who he was. Jesus not only healed, but He was strategic about it. He knew that once word got out about His power and willingness to help, it would be nearly impossible to move about freely. Later on we read how difficult it was for Jesus to move about, but it was His compassion and love that drove Him to the people to love and heal them.
