Passage: Luke 8:32~39  

Key verse: 39

1. A ruined pig business (32-37)

Jesus set the demoniac free by sending the demons which tormented him into a herd of pigs. The pigs drowned. When the townspeople came to see what had happened, they saw their pigs floating like pink corks in the lake, and one crazy man sitting at Jesus' feet, clothed and in his right mind. They didn't care about the man; they only thought about their pigs. They were afraid of suffering more loss because of Jesus, so they asked him to leave. Jesus got into a boat and left, and the people of that city lost God's blessing.

2. Go, tell what the Lord has done (38-39)

As Jesus was leaving, the man he had saved asked to go with him. Jesus said, 'no,' and gave him a mission: 'Go home and tell how much the Lord has done for you.' The man obeyed, and the seed of the gospel was planted in that godless place.

Prayer: Lord, help me to value people above material profit. Help me to tell what you have done in me to my family and friends.

One Word: Tell what the Lord has done
