“Nothing to Live For.”
It’s hard to believe that in this day and time, there are so many people who feel like that… Some are on drugs, some are wealthy, and others are miserable with life… they have no friends. This is how a man felt in Mark the 5th chapter. Jesus had just been ministering to a large crowd when suddenly He made the decision to take the boat and “pass over onto the other side.” He did and the first person who came running up to him was a demon-possessed man, who had spent years among the tombs.
To say he had nothing to live for, would be an understatement. He was unloved and spent his life in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with rocks, until he bled. He felt that “he had nothing to live for,” until he met Jesus. Jesus cast the devils out of him and when he did, the man wanted to follow Jesus! Jesus told him to go home and tell his family what great things the Lord had done. But, the man was so excited, he became an evangelist, telling about Jesus everywhere he went! He now had “something to live for!”
When we know Jesus, we truly have “something to live for!!”
