I read this morning about how Jesus helped a man who was demon possessed. Because of the demons who tormented him, this man:
- lived isolated among the tombs
- couldn’t be chained or contained
- lived naked
He was clearly deranged & without hope.
After meeting Jesus & receiving His freedom from the demons, the man was dramatically changed – so much that when the townspeople came out to see what was happening, they found the former tormented lunatic:
- interacting with Jesus & His disciples
- seated & serene
It never ceases to astound me that the townspeople ran off Jesus because they were afraid of His power to change everything. They seemed to have become more comfortable with demons than Jesus who brought freedom from all things demonic.
Let’s fully welcome Jesus into every area of our lives to restore order, serenity, salvation & the ability to engage & connect with others in healthy ways!
Jesus changes everything!
