The people implored Jesus to leave.
They had heard what He permitted…the demons to enter the swine.
They has seen what He did…set the man full of demons free!
They has seen the man…seated at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind.
Still, fear trumped faith and they begged Jesus to leave.
Do not judge quickly.
We do the same thing.
We reject the move of the Lord that will set the captive free.
We implore the Lord to leave in many ways.
Yet, there was one who implored…but to another purpose…
And they began to implore Him to leave their region.
As He was getting into the boat,
the man who had been demon-possessed was imploring Him that he might accompany Him.
Note that Jesus was leaving.
The people had asked Him to leave, so He did.
Think on that…
But, the man whose life was forever changed implored Him that he might accompany Him.
He wanted to be with Jesus.
He knew what had happened.
He knew he had been given a new life.
He feared not.
He walked in faith.
May we do likewise.
