Redeemed & Feta Pesto Omelette

Mark 5:2 (erv)

When Jesus got out of the boat, a man came to him from the caves where the dead are buried. This man had an evil spirit living inside him. 

Write

This isn’t a typo! Today, we’re going to do things a little differently! We’re going to start with our journals and a few passages in the Bible, and then we’ll come back to talk about them.

In your journal, draw a line down the center of the page, creating 2 columns. Read the following passages, and take note of the man that Jesus heals. Based on what you read and your own visuals, write down characteristics and details about the man before Jesus heals him in the first column, and after Jesus heals him in the second column.

Matthew 8:28-34
Mark 5:1-20
Luke 8:26-39

Read

By now, you’ve probably gathered that we’re looking at the life of a man who was possessed by demons. When Jesus gets out of the boat in Gerasene, the man enters the scene and everything is about to change.

One of my favorite things about the Gospel books is that the stories are recounted and told in different ways, with each author adding in slightly different details based on their own memories or experiences. By reading about the same event from 3 different perspectives, we can gather a lot of information and then form our own visuals and ideas about this man.

Based on the readings, I was able to paint an image in my mind of this man before Jesus healed him. He was naked, dirty, isolated, angry, fearful, sad, and broken. You probably came up with your own adjectives for him as well. And if they’re different than mine, that’s okay. The point here is to see the contrast after Jesus healed him.

In that second column, I wrote: clothed, humble, quiet, introspective, thoughtful, grateful, and redeemed.

Before seeing how this story ends, did you feel like the man was hopeless? I know I did. I imagined what I would do if I was approaching him on the beach, and I can certainly tell you that it wouldn’t have been to stick around and get to know him. But Jesus doesn’t see us that way; not any of us. He sees what we can be, who we were meant to be, and what’s underneath the worldly, evil things that might have taken over. He doesn’t run and hide from us when we’re broken. He steps in and He steps up.

Pray

For anyone in your life that is still broken and needs to be redeemed by the love of Jesus.
