But Can You Heal me? - Mark 5:1-20

July 3, 2022


They came to Jesus and saw the man
previously possessed by demons sitting there,
clothed and in his right mind

Mark 5:15


Are you ready to change?

The Gospels of the New Testament are filled with accounts of Jesus healing people. In every case it radically changed the healed person's life. For the man who had been an invalid for 38 years, who had waited at the pool for healing for a long time, without anybody to help him, Jesus said, "Stand up, take your mat and walk." He no longer required help from others, he could help himself. In today's passage, Jesus casts demons out of a man. Rather than returning to what he had done before, the man is called to tell others about Jesus.
