So Jesus had just calmed the storm and all the guys were happy – Yay! But then they came ashore and were met by a man (a filthy, naked, long-haired raving lunatic who lived in tombs and used to cut himself with sharp rocks) screaming at the top of his lungs. Quite a welcoming party. The locals where somewhat freaked by him as he could break chains like twigs because he was a little overcrowded by demons. The End.
Imagine if his story really ended there – no more ‘yay’ But so begins his journey with Jesus. The man ends up being the 1st recorded missionary sent by Jesus. His restored relationship with Jesus helped to change his neighbourhood What’s happening in your journey with Jesus?
