Notes
Text Critical Issues v19 - διαγγειλον/αναγγειλον/απαγγειλον ? v19 - σοι ο κυριος/σοι ο θεος/ο κυριος/ο κυριος σοι ? -these are not of great consequence Observations ἐμβαίνοντος αὐτοῦ - genitive absolute construction δαιμονισθεὶς - notice the use of the aorist tense as opposed to the previous uses of the present. This man was set free! Two uses of the dative of advantage (vs 19 & 20) in the 'report'
Devotional
Usually when someone says that they want to be with Jesus we would consider that a good thing! That is the situation presented in Mark 5:18. Jesus has just healed this man who had a legion of demons tormenting him. Understandably this man wants to follow Jesus. But Jesus surprises us by telling this man that he cannot come, but rather must go and report the goodness of God among his people. In this story I see a desperate man without hope and Jesus' power over evil and his mercy for the hopeless. I see a man given life and purpose through the work of Jesus. In short I see myself. In Ephesians 2:1-3 Paul describes the state of desperate people without hope: dead in sin, following the evil prince of this world, destined for wrath. This is who I was. And the same is true for all who do not know Jesus. This was the wild man in Mark 5. Left to ourselves we will all be like him. Tormented by our own desires and the prince of the power of the air. Utterly unable to bring relief or salvation to ourselves. In Ephesians 2:4-9 Paul describes God's work in saving people from hopeless because of his great love: made alive in Christ by grace through faith, a gift from God given in mercy and love. This is what Jesus did for that man on the shore. He gave him freedom from the chains of the evil one. And this is what he has done for those who believe in his name and hope in him. This man was so grateful that all he wanted was to be with Jesus. But Jesus gave him a new purpose in life. 'Go, report to your people the goodness and mercy of God.' Ephesians 2:10 helps us to see purpose in our lives as well. We have been made new in Christ in order that we might walk in the good works God has prepared for us. We certainly desire to be with Jesus. That is far better. Yet he has given us a mission: Go, and in everything you do proclaim the love and mercy of God.
A Prayer (Valley of Vision, 84-85)
O God of the highest heaven, occupy the throne of my heart, take full possession and reign supreme, lay low every rebel lust, let no vile passion resist thy holy war; manifest thy mighty power, and make me thine forever. Thou art worthy to be praised with every breath, loved with my every faculty of soul, served with my every act of life. Thou hast loved me, espoused me, received me, purchased, washed, favoured, clothed, adorned me, when I was worthless, vile, soiled, polluted. I was dead in iniquities, having no eyes to see thee, no ears to hear thee, no taste to relish thy joys, no intelligence to know thee; But thy Spirit has quickened me, has brought me into a new world as a new creature, has given me spiritual perception, has opened to me thy Word as light, guide, solace, joy. Thy presence is to me a treasure of unending peace; No provocation can part me from thy sympathy, for thou hast drawn me with cords of love, and does forgive me daily, hourly. O help me then to walk worthy of thy love, of my hopes, and my vocation. Keep me, for I cannot keep myself; Protect me so that no evil befall me; Let me lay aside every sin admired of many; Help me to walk by thy side, lean on thy arm, hold converse with thee, that henceforth I may be salt of the earth and a blessing to all.
