MATTHEW 17 – LIFE OR DEATH

““Lord, have mercy on my son,” he said. “He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water.” Matthew 17:15

“Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed at that moment.” Matthew 17:18

In Matthew 17, The Lord Jesus healed a boy who was tormented by a demon that often made him fall into the fire or into the water.
This scene depicts life and death. On one side, the demon led the boy to death by making him fall into the fire or into the water. And on the other side, The Lord Jesus brought life to the boy by healing him.
In our daily lives, the same principles apply. On the one hand, the devil wants to lead us on a path that leads us to death and on the other hand, The Lord Jesus wants to lead us on a path that leads us to Life. But He leaves us the freedom to choose to follow Him or follow the devil.
The Word of God is The Guide that enlightens us and allows us to follow Christ on The Path of Life rather than the devil on the path of death. It is up to each of us to take care to read The Word of God and put It into practice.
