Jesus heals a man with a demon. – Mark 5:1-20
OBSERVATION: In this passage we read about an encounter that Jesus had with a broken man. It is heartbreaking to hear about his condition. The community was so afraid of him that they drove him away to live among the tombs. They decided to give up on him. Much like this broken man, the homeless in our community are looked down upon as unclean, outcasts, and dangerous. Many people have given up on them…but not Jesus. And we shouldn’t either.
PRAYER: Dear Jesus, help us to follow your example by loving and serving the homeless in our community. We pray that you would bring healing and restoration in their lives.
