Relinquishing Control (Mark 5:1-20)

Tim Cain, November 11, 2017
Part of the Mark series, preached at a Saturday Evening service

Deep within each one of us is a longing to be in control. There is not a person in this room who doesn’t sometimes think that things would be better if only they were in control. The truth is that we spend most of our time either battling for control or distracting ourselves from the things that we can’t control. Well in Mark 5:1-20 we find a story that is all about who is in control and how different people respond when they realize that it’s not them. By the time it is over you will find yourself faced with the same question that the characters in the story are faced with. Are we willing to give up the illusion of control in order to truly follow Jesus?
