Please Leave

Matthew 8:28-34

Jesus' calming of the storm left the disciples in fearful worship.  The healing of the two demon=possessed men left the citizens of Gadarenes in fearful rejection.  They wanted Jesus to go.  The word used in the NASB is they implored Jesus to leave their region.  Their fearful response reveals their lack of faith.  They cared nothing about the healing of these two men.  They were more concerned about the economic loss of their pigs.  They would have accepted a Jesus who played by their rules. 

Our world today is ok with a god who plays by their rules, but they do not want the God of the Bible.  He bows to no one.  He answers to non one.  He demands that we worship only Him.  He calls us to repent and believe.  His Gospel transforms us.  The world doesn't want that type of Savior.  They want a Savior to serve them.  What about you?
