“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.”
Jesus did a good deed by restoring a demon-possessed man to wholeness. The people of the region came to see. Jesus’ miracle caused them to be afraid. They had become accustomed to the evil of demon possession.
Does the Good News of great joy frighten us? Are we so accustomed to a warped and twisted existence that the wholeness of purification and forgiveness causes us discomfort?
