Legions of demons
The disciples witness a terrifying spiritual power encounter between Jesus and a legion of demons. A madman falls down at the feet of Jesus. The demons recognised who Jesus was and pleaded with Him not to torment them but to give them permission to enter the pigs. Clear theology does not save us. Even demons believe in Jesus. Head knowledge does not save us. Humble obedience and submission to the only One Who can save, Jesus Christ the Lord, is the only way to be saved. We fear what we can’t control. Jesus continually challenges and shakes our world view. The villagers begged Jesus to go away even though they had seen the healing of the madman. We get thoroughly shaken when we witness supernatural events. Jesus changes lives. It is not the healthy who need a doctor. Jesus came for sinners like us. Are we allowing Jesus to change us or are we allowing the world to influence us so that we have one foot in the world and one foot in the kingdom? We are called to make disciples and we cannot do this until we are a disciple of Jesus ourselves. Then we need to share with our family what God has done for us. May God use us in this region for His Glory!
