As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. Jesus did not let him, but said, ‘Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.’ Mark 5:18-19
He said to her, ‘Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.’ Mark 5:34
At this they were completely astonished. Mark 5:42b
Thoughts for Pondering
Has Jesus broken the chains that keep me captive?
Will I risk what others think to get close to Jesus?
Is my faith strong enough to heal me?
Do I recognize the work of Jesus in my life enough to be completely astonished?

Thanks for creating community here with us! The Big Red Sofa Series is about the things I see in life that make me go hmmmm. What God teaches me in scripture. The ordinary things that God can use to drive home spiritual lessons. The questions I sometimes ask. The stories we can all share. So pull up a cushion and join me on the sofa. I’d love to hear from you!
