Scripture: Mark 5:1–20, 1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 6:12, Colossians 2:15, Mark 4:15–17, Ephesians 2:4–5


Mark 5:1-20

The Story:

Mark 5:1-20

  • “region of the Garasenes”
  • “man with an evil spirit came from the tombs”
  • “my name is Legion”
  • “Those tending the pigs”
  • “Go home to your own people”

The Takeaways:

1 Peter 5:8, Ephesians 6:12, Colossians 2:15, Mark 4:15-17, Ephesians 2:4-5

  1. Jesus has authority over Satan and his legion of demons.
  2. Spiritual warfare is real, but Christ has achieved complete victory.
  3. When God manifests himself in Jesus, some people beg him to leave while others desire to be with him.

A picture of redemption and discipleship: a restored individual, sitting at the feet of Jesus, sent home to tell how much the Lord has done for him.
