Matthew 8:28–34 (ESV)
Heals Two Men with Demons
28 And when he came to the other side, to the country of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed
men met him, coming out of the tombs, so fierce that no one could pass that way. 29 And behold, they cried out, “What have you to do with us, O Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the time?” 30 Now
a herd of many pigs was feeding at some distance from them. 31 And the demons begged him, saying, “If you cast us out, send us away into the herd of pigs.” 32 And he said to them,
“Go.” So they came out and went into the pigs, and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and drowned in the waters. 33 The herdsmen fled, and going into the city they told everything, especially
what had happened to the demon-possessed men. 34 And behold, all the city came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him, they begged him to leave their region.
Have you ever noticed how the demons know Jesus? They call him Son of God. Have you ever noticed that the demons are scared of Jesus?
Well, he is superior to them… and he created them. I find it amazing that we live in a world that openly rejects Jesus and doesn’t know him. Jesus is not about death, but life and he is the light of the world. Seek light, not
I pray: O Lord, help me to keep my eyes focused on you,
the creator of all things. Amen.
