The Bible tells us that we have been bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20) and made into the possessions of God (1 Peter 2:9), however, the way we live our lives can sometimes fail to depict this truth. In this standalone sermon, we looked at Mark 5 and the story of Jesus healing a demon possessed man, while asking the question, “What possesses us?” We learned that we can often tell what we give our allegiance to by what we revere and what revolts us. What possesses us can also be determined by what we proclaim and what we profane; we can either proclaim the excellencies of God with our lives, or profane it by living a life contrary to His truth. Finally, like the townspeople of the story, what possesses us is ultimately determined by what we choose: the Savior or the swine, the Life-giver or the life-style. The question of “what possesses us?” requires an answer from all people and gives no room to be in the middle — we are either for Him or against Him.
