Mark 9:28 // And when he had entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why could we not cast it out?”
When Jesus is only a part of your life your whole life is broken apart.
The farther the gap, the closer the trap.
Mark 9:18, 28-29 // And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid. So I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.
It’s not about performance, it’s about proximity.
