Description

MARK 5:1-20 – JESUS SHOWED UP!

  • A man hadn’t walked for 38 years. Jesus showed up, and the man walked!
  • A man born blind had never seen. Jesus showed up and the man saw!
  • 5,000 men plus women and children needed to be fed. Jesus showed up and fed them using five loaves and two fishes.
  • There was a storm on the Sea of Galilee and the disciples were in jeopardy. Jesus showed up and there was complete calm.
  • On more than one occasion the Peters family had a financial need. Jesus showed up and met the need.
  • Many of us have been sick or had loved ones sick. Jesus showed up, and they were healed.
  • Many of you can say with me, I was a lost sinner, needing a Savior. Jesus showed up and saved me.
  • There was a man who was demon-possessed by hundreds of demons. Jesus showed up! Let’s see what happens.

I see this story of the demon possessed man as a picture of salvation. When we were desperate, Jesus showed up!
