Luke 9:41
Next Verse

And Jesus answering said, O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you, and suffer you? Bring thy son hither.

Note 1 at Lu 9:41: Jesus was disappointed that His disciples had not been able to cast this devil out. Most people would have had no criticism of these disciples. After all, it wasn't normal to have power over evil spirits.

However, Jesus had already given these disciples power and authority over all devils (Lu 9:1). These disciples had also already used this power and authority successfully, making them more accountable than others (Lu 12:48). They weren't just normal men any longer. They had a supernatural ability and calling.

We also receive power from on high when the Holy Ghost comes upon us (Ac 1:8), and it becomes our normal Christian service to use this power to witness to others. We can always look around and find plenty of Christians who are not using this power, but 2Co 10:12 says that comparing ourselves among ourselves is not wise. Most Christians are living so far below what God intended for them that when some begin to live normal Christian lives (according to God's standard), then everyone else thinks they're abnormal.
