The people of Gergesenes sent Jesus out of their country because they had lost a single herd of swine as a result of a miracle of Christ.
It was an impulse reaction to their loss of income that led the people to distance theirselves from Jesus.
Well it’s easy for us to make that observation because we’re just looking at the facts, not feeling the emotions.
But how often are we quick to make decisions based on how we feel, despite what the Word says or how the Lord is leading?
If you’re wrestling with surrendering something to the Lord try listing the facts. Take your emotion out of it.
Actually seeing what Christ is offering you in return for whatever He is asking you to give should make following His lead a lot easier.
