Demon-Possessed Pigs (Luke 8)

with | April 22, 2019

In Luke 8 Jesus casts a legion of demons out of a man into some farmer's pigs. Have you ever thought what it cost that farmer? He starts the day rich, but ends it with 2000 dead demon-possessed pigs drowned in a lake. Marriage is a bit like this. There are many unexpected sacrifices Jesus demands of us: putting up with your spouse's annoying personality quirks; changing how I communicate to live peaceably with them and on and on. But my unexpected cost is a joy to our "usness." Together, we win.
