Passage: Luke 8:26-39
Pastor Tom Lundeen
What did Jesus have to say to ordinary people like ?
What did He do in people’s lives?
It’s no coincidence that right after Jesus calmed the storm (something that was humanly , note Luke 8:22-25) that Jesus stepped ashore and was confronted with a human being that also seemed (note Luke 8:27-29).
A. The Gadarene demoniac – although our external condition may not ever anything close to this…our spiritual state from Jesus has many similarities to this man.
All of these terms (and others) paint a picture of spiritual desperation for any person from Jesus.
B. The of this area (note Luke 8:30-37) – Human beings apart from a relationship with Jesus are in a desperate spiritual state…and yet can still reject the One who can meet their deepest needs and make life .
Note Luke 8:27-29, 35b
The of any human being is the greatest miracle God performs (note Colossians 1:13-14; 2 Corinthians 5:17).
Note Luke 8:38
Jesus sent him away not as a punishment, but for a (note Luke 8:39a).
Note Luke 8:39b
You know what I . You see what I . made the difference.
Jesus changes our lives, makes us part of His Body, gives us spiritual gifts, and us to serve and minister in His Name (note Philippians 1:4-6; Ephesians 2:10).
Your story really does matter to Jesus:
