Those who had actually seen what had happened to the demon-possessed man told the others about the pigs. Then they pleaded with Jesus to leave their region. - Mark 5:16-17 (CEB)
Each time I read today’s verse I find myself in stunned disbelief. Despite another wonderful and amazing miracle, the crowd still didn’t want to accept Jesus and emphatically asked him to leave. In the past, reading these verses often led me to wonder, Why would they want Jesus to leave...
Every day, I will seek ways to draw near to God.
