Daily Reading – Genesis 25 / Matthew 8:23-34
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 8:32 And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Every heard, “that’ll happen when pigs fly.” Sounds impossible, but in our bible reading today we find Jesus doing the impossible. He sent the devils out of man into pigs and the pigs ran off a cliff. I can almost hear those people saying, “Did You see the pigs fly?”
What Jesus did was more spectacular than just making pigs fly. He ignored several cultural barriers to help them. These men were Gentiles, living in tombs, and demon possessed. All of which are against Jewish ceremonial laws of contact. Yet, Jesus looked past the barrier and saw the people and helped them anyway. Jesus’ love for man will overcome barriers. He wants to help you too.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
What, “When Pigs fly,” situations
might He help you with?
