January 23 - Luke 8.22-39
Jesus Calms a Storm
Jesus got up and gave an order to the wind and to the stormy water; they quieted down, and there was a great calm. 25Then he said to the disciples, "Where is your faith?"
But they were amazed and afraid, and said to one another, "Who is this man? He gives orders to the winds and waves, and they obey him!"
Jesus Heals a Man with Demons
30Jesus asked him, "What is your name?"
"My name is 'Mob,'" he answered--because many demons had gone into him. 31The demons begged Jesus not to send them into the abyss.
32There was a large herd of pigs near by, feeding on a hillside. So the demons begged Jesus to let them go into the pigs, and he let them. 33They went out of the man and into the pigs. The whole herd rushed down the side of the cliff into the lake and was drowned.
34The men who had been taking care of the pigs saw what happened, so they ran off and spread the news in the town and among the farms. 35People went out to see what had happened, and when they came to Jesus, they found the man from whom the demons had gone out sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind; and they were all afraid. 36Those who had seen it told the people how the man had been cured. 37Then all the people from that territory asked Jesus to go away, because they were terribly afraid. So Jesus got into the boat and left. 38The man from whom the demons had gone out begged Jesus, "Let me go with you."
But Jesus sent him away, saying, 39"Go back home and tell what God has done for you."
The man went through the town, tellTng what Jesus had done for him.
