Harmless Noise

[Jesus] gave them authority over unclean spirits.
Harmless Noise
The devil has often raised a racket in the house and has tried to scare me, but I appealed to my calling and said: I know that God has placed me into this house to be lord here. Now if you have a call that is stronger than mine and are lord here, then stay where you are. But well know that you are not lord here and that you belong in a different place—down in hell. And so I fell asleep again and let him be angry, for I well knew that he could do nothing to me.

From the House Postil, third sermon for Easter on Luke 24:36-47 (WLS, p. 404, no. 1192)
