Demons Begging at the Feet of Jesus

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 5:1-20.
A legion of demons possessed a man, taking control of him. Even one demon in one strong man will control him. Demons are more powerful than humans are. Yet, the demon-possessed man in the story that you are going to read today, saw Jesus and worshiped Him. Jesus began to cast the demons out of the man, but listen to Mark 5:10, “Also he begged Him earnestly that He would not send them out of the country” (Mark 5:10).
Demons beg before my Lord Jesus Christ! They did it again in verse 12. Interestingly, Jesus granted their request. Even more interesting, when the formerly demon-possessed man begged something of Jesus, He did not grant it because the Lord had something else for the man to do.
Demons are more powerful than we are. Yet, they are at the mercy of our Friend Jesus. Followers of Christ are greater than demons are because we follow Jesus, but we submit to His commands, even if it is not something that we want to do initially. Never forget who you are.
