Don’t Settle for Status Quo Bondage

One of the notes I made on the passage in Mark 5 where Jesus heals the demoniac: “Don’t settle for letting people stay in bondage.”

Sometimes it is hard work seeing people set free. It might be pray. It might be fasting. It might be counseling. It might be a huge combination of many things.

Don’t give up. Don’t let up. Jesus had to deal with the demoniac to some extent because his name was Legion. There is indication that this conversation took a little more time than “normal” for Jesus. Yet, he stayed at it.

Don’t settle for bondage… in yourself… or others.
