If He Can

 A father brought is son to Jesus. The boy was possessed by an unclean spirit which caused him to fall to the ground convulsing and foaming at the mouth. The father was desperate for help.

He had already gone to the apostles, but they couldn’t help. The spirit would try to throw the boy in the water or fire trying to kill him. The father asked Jesus to have compassion and help: If He Can. This showed his true lack of belief.

“If You can?” echoed Jesus. “All things are possible to him who believes!”  Mark 9:28 NIV

Jesus healed the boy and taught a lesson in the process. You see the unclean spirit left and the boy fell down as if he was dead. Jesus helped the boy up. 

After Jesus had gone into the house, His disciples asked Him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” Jesus answered, “This kind cannot come out, except by prayer.” Mark 9:28-29 NIV
