In this passage of God’s Word, we see Jesus and His disciples meet a man who possessed by many demons. Jesus has just been teaching His disciples about what it means to respond to God in a faithful way, and now they are experiencing it firsthand. By taking a close look at this story, we too can learn about what it means to respond to God in a faithful manor.
We need to realize that:
1. Our faith is more than intellect
Luke 8:28, James 1:27, 2:19, Matt. 7:21-23
2. “Normal things” can hold our faith captive
Luke 8:34-37, John 8:34, 2 Tim. 2:14-26, 2 Pet. 2:17-19, 2 Cor. 10:5
3. Faith demands we share the good news
Luke 8:38-39, Matt. 9:37-38, 28:19-20, Rom. 1:16
