Jesus’ Healing Tour; Next Stop….Your Heart

Throughout the Gospels, we hear of Jesus moving from town to town healing crowds of believers of everything from paralysis to demonic possession. At each of these events, there are always witnesses who are shocked by what they see with their own eyes. Sometimes the shock leads to a deep faith in Christ; other times, the shock leads to rejecting Jesus and sending Him away.


In the Gospel of Luke, we hear how Jesus heals a man who was being controlled by so many demons that, when asked his name, the demons replied, “Legion.” In sending the demons out of the man, Jesus allowed them to enter a heard of pigs. The pigs couldn’t endure the torment of the demons and “ran violently down the steep place into the lake and drowned.” (Luke 8.33) As with every healing, many witnesses saw this event and some believed while others rejected God. The Gospel says, “Then the whole multitude of the surrounding region of the Gadarenes, asked Him to depart from them, for they were seized with great fear. Now the man from whom the demons had departed begged Him that he might be with Him.” (Luke 8.37-38)


Jesus has chosen to stop in your heart today and do some healing; we all need a little healing from Jesus. One thing remains….how will you react?
