In Mark 5 Jesus continues to show His power over everything as he heals the Gerasene Demoniac, the woman with the hemorrhage and raises Jairus’ daughter from the dead. The before and after condition of the Gerasene Demoniac is dramatic. Before Jesus cast the demons out of him, he was out of control. After Jesus had cast the demons out of him he was said to have been “sitting down, clothed and in his right mind.” His transformation was total and the people could see it, so much so that they were afraid. When Jesus gets hold of someone’s life, there will be such a transformation that others will notice. Also, the former demoniac began telling others “what great things Jesus and done for him.” This is the natural response of all who have been transformed by Jesus. Lord, by Your grace may I be about intentionally telling others of the great things you have done for me in transferring me from the kingdom of darkness into Your kingdom.
