Bobby Thornhill, Former Pastor CentrevlUe & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches Then He said, ffDo not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is ho- ly ground." Exodus 3:5 NKJV) "Then all the people of the region of the Ger- asenes asked Jesus to leave them, because they were overcome with fear. So He got into the boat and left." Luke 8:37 (NIV) We know the story of Jesus casting out the de- mons from the man liv- ing in the tombs. We know that there were many de- mons, so many that the name Legion was used to indicate his terrible condi- tion. We also know that Jesus cast the demons into the herd (about 2000 Mark 5:13) of swine and that they drowned them- selves in the sea. All of these facts are gathered from a plain reading of the Scripture passages found in Matthew, Mark, and Luke. They also give us an indication of the fear that gripped the region around the tombs because of the possessed man; he was chained and impris- oned because of their fear, though he broke those bonds with ease; yet they continued to live in the midst of that fear. Now comes Jesus and removes the fear of the demoniac and the whole region gath- ers together and asks Him to leave. How can this be? These accounts give us graphic details of Je- sus overcoming the legion of demons by His spoken word; of the transforma- tion of the demoniac into a follower of Jesus. The truth is friends we are more afraid of Jesus' power to transform the evil in our lives than we are of that evil itself. For the most part we are content to live with our evils rather than allow Him to deliver and restore us so that we be- come (like the delivered de- moniac) followers of Jesus. The tragic ending to this passage is to be taken to heart by us all; when asked to leave, Jesus "got into the boat and left." Have we asked Him to leave our lives by our refusal to em- brace Him and His teach- ings? Are we more afraid of being transformed by His grace than of living in bondage to sin?
