Don’t be Held Down by the Demons of Life
Sometimes we hear the Gospel and think of “just another story from another time in history.” In truth every story in the Scripture is for out benefit today. When we hear the story of the Gadarene Demoniac, although we may not be demon possessed, there are many demons that can cripple us and leave us alone in the wilderness. The joy we can have through hearing this Gospel lesson is that God is always protecting us, and He has the power to free us from the demons that control us. Whether it be the passions such as greed and pride, or illnesses such as depression, God can and will heal us if we put our trust and faith in Him.
