The man was free!
The demons were gone!
The man was “legionless”!
The man was clothed.
The man was seated at the feet of Jesus.
The man was in his right mind.
All rejoiced…or did they?
What was the reaction of folk?
First, they were frightened…we saw that yesterday.
They came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind, the very man who had had the “legion”;
and they became frightened.
Those who had seen it described to them how it had happened to the demon-possessed man, and all about the swine.
And they began to implore Him to leave their region.
They heard the first hand account.
They then implored…begged…Jesus to leave them.
To leave the region.
One would think that they would want Jesus to remain…
…to set others free.
…to speak of the Kingdom.
Yet, their fear drove them to ask the Lord to leave.
The same occurs today.
We “ask the Lord to leave” in much of what we do.
The Lord is desiring to do so much in/and through us, yet we reject Him.
We rebuff Him.

Still, there was one…later…
