Re:Verse reading– Mark 5:1-20 (day seven)
“And they came to Jesus and observed the man who had been demon-possessed sitting down, clothed and in his right mind”–v 15
There are two sides of the Christmas message. The first is that Jesus is LIGHT. We celebrated it last night in the Christmas Eve service. The second is the Jesus is LORD. GOD with us! He doesn’t just show the way, He makes it possible for us to walk it. He has power over dark forces we struggle with every day.
In some ways, the demonized man in Mark 5 is a strange story to tell on Christmas morning. In another way, it is perfect! Until life is transformed by the power of Christ, Christmas hasn’t come, no matter what the calendar says.
Christ has come! We should all rejoice in this truth. Come to Christ! We should all obey this truth and find power for holy living. Then, it will be Christmas!
