When we consider Jesus’ healings in the light of God’s coming kingdom we might be surprised not by the power of God’s plan, but by the gentleness of his love. God’s rule is made manifest not in a display of power, subjugating all of humanity to himself by force, but in the renewed humanity of a once-mute man.

God’s kingship is not imposed on the world from outside, as though he would oppress us with his power. Rather, God’s rule takes root in the renovation of human hearts. – Fr. Daniel O’Mullane
