Mark 5:1-20

Mark’s account of the man possessed is vividly detailed. It begins with a sad description of his situation. The man approaches Jesus and asks that the demons be expelled from him and sent into the herd of swine. Jesus does what he asks, returning the man to wholeness. He wants to follow Jesus but remains in his community, sharing the good news of his miraculous transformation.

I am reminded that there is hope in the most hopeless situation. No matter what the circumstances, change is possible with you.
