Focus on God’s Goodness-Deliverance from Evil

June 25th, 2024

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Focus on God’s Goodness is found in Mark 5:18 to 20.

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”. So the man went away and began to tell in Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.

Here was a man that many would say was a lost cause. He was possessed by many demons. Evil controlled his life, until Jesus intervened and delivered him from evil.

The name of Jesus has the power to deliver us from the evil that seeks to control our lives. We can find freedom and hope under His influence of grace and truth. When God delivers us, that is a reason to praise God and share our testimony of what God has done for us.

Deliverance from Evil reveals the goodness of God and is a reason to give thanks in the Year of Gratitude.
