Casting Out Evil Through Love
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111). The Lord raised up prophets to speak in his name (Deuteronomy 18:15-20). While Jesus was on earth, he taught with authority and did many miracles (Mark 1:21-28). Knowledge puffs us up, but love builds up (1 Cor. 8:1-13) - Thomas Oden,  Ancient Christian Devotional

Commentary on Mark 1:21-28
"Faith is mighty, but without love it profits nothing. The devils confessed Christ, but lacking charity it availed nothing. They said, “What have we to do with you?” They confessed a sort of faith, but without love. Hence they were devils. Do not boast of that faith that puts you on the same level with the devils." -Augustine
