A man from the tombs. The man is an outcast from society, possessed by unclean spirits, living among the tombs. Dwelling among the dead, he has no hope, no future, no life. He is under the dominion of Satan, powerless and helpless. But meeting Jesus is the beginning of new hope and new life. The presence of Jesus brings him liberation from the unclean spirits. And he is given a purpose in life: to go home to his family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for him.
After Jesus heals us, he sends us on mission. Have we announced and shared with our family and friends all that the Lord in his pity has done for us?
