Luke 8:26-39

Choose your side: God or satan.  Jeremiah 29:11; John 10:10 (peace, not evil, with a future and a hope) or (steal, kill, and destroy)

1. What satan desires.  Luke 8:26-33; Ephesians 2:1; James 2:19

2. Culture offers chains.

3. Christ offers hope.

4. Culture's reaction to Christ.  Luke 8:34-37 

“The man from whom the demons had gone out begged to go with Jesus, but Jesus sent him away, saying, ‘Return home and tell how much God has done for you.’  So the man went away and told all over town how much Jesus had done for him.”  [Luke 8:38-39]

There are two reactions of humanity to Jesus Christ: “Away with Him!” or “Follow Him!”
