Jesus was met by a demon-possessed man. I am so very uncomfortable with this, I want to run. Jesus calmly asked what his name is. My fear is getting in the way. I need to let Holy Spirit calm me and enable me to see the person that is possessed and have compassion. Jesus gave permission for the demons to leave the man and go into the pigs. The authority is given from the Father to the Son and to us. The man was free! Jesus tells him to go to his family and tell them about how much the Lord had done for him and how the Lord has had mercy on him. Can I give up my fear to the Lord to participate in setting someone free? Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Thank you Lord for your mercy to me!
