Mark 4:35 – 5:29
On that day, when evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s go across to the other side of the lake.”So after leaving the crowd, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat, and other boats were with him. Now a great windstorm developed and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was nearly swamped. But he was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. They woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care that we are about to die?” So he got up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Be quiet! Calm down!” Then the wind stopped, and it was dead calm. And he said to them, “Why are you cowardly? Do you still not have faith?” They were overwhelmed by fear and said to one another, “Who then is this? Even the wind and sea obey him!”
My commentary: It is interesting that right here the disciples are asking, “who is this man?” They still do not fully understand who they are spending all this time with but within a very short time they would get their answer.
So they came to the other side of the lake, to the region of the Gerasenes. Just as Jesus was getting out of the boat, a man with an unclean spirit came from the tombs and met him. He lived among the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. For his hands and feet had often been bound with chains and shackles, but he had torn the chains apart and broken the shackles in pieces. No one was strong enough to subdue him. Each night and every day among the tombs and in the mountains, he would cry out and cut himself with stones. When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and bowed down before him. Then he cried out with a loud voice, “Leave me alone, Jesus, Son of the Most High God! I implore you by God—do not torment me!” (For Jesus had said to him, “Come out of that man, you unclean spirit!”)Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” And he said, “My name is Legion, for we are many.” He begged Jesus repeatedly not to send them out of the region. There on the hillside, a great herd of pigs was feeding. And the demonic spirits begged him, “Send us into the pigs. Let us enter them.” Jesus gave them permission. So the unclean spirits came out and went into the pigs. Then the herd rushed down the steep slope into the lake, and about two thousand were drowned in the lake. Now the herdsmen ran off and spread the news in the town and countryside, and the people went out to see what had happened. They came to Jesus and saw the demon-possessed man sitting there, clothed and in his right mind—the one who had the “Legion”—and they were afraid. Those who had seen what had happened to the demon-possessed man reported it, and they also told about the pigs. Then they asked Jesus to leave their region. As he was getting into the boat the man who had been demon-possessed asked if he could go with him. But Jesus did not permit him to do so. Instead, he said to him, “Go to your home and to your people and tell them what the Lord has done for you, that he had mercy on you.” So he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis what Jesus had done for him, and all were amazed.
So here on one hand we have a man that in most peoples eyes you would think there was no hope. He was done, he was finished. An extreme example of the other end is the Apostle Paul who most of us know. He tortured and killed Christian in the name of God but was so misguided in his thinking. And in between these two you have where everyone else fits.
What is amazing is that if the man that appeared to be so far gone was saved by Christ and if Paul who also needed to Find the real Jesus and did and he also was saved by Christ then there is no one without hope.
Christ came and paid a penalty He did not owe so we could have a relationship with him. If you or if you know someone that needs Jesus, do not give up on them. Pray for them that God will draw them to himself and that they would surrender their life to Jesus.
Thanks for the push this morning men it was a real pleasure to serve you this morning.
SYITG – Hot Mic out!
