No Thanks Jesus

Then the whole town went out to meet Jesus. And when they saw him, they pleaded with him to leave their region.  Matt 8:34

Thanks Jesus, but you are messing with our culture and economy and something has to go.  We would prefer it was you.

Jesus had just removed demons from a man.  They had gone from the man to a herd of pigs.  The herd ran off the side of a cliff and died.  The folks were more concerned about the loss of money than the fact that a man had been made new and a miracle was performed by the son of God.  He intersected their world, and made some things right.  They now had  a choice – live with the Son of God who is full of miracles and restoration, or go back to the way things were.

They chose unwisely.

Thanks, but no thanks.

God, may I never be so concerned with my quality of life that I dismiss you when you intersect.   I invite you to wreck my life with your presence.  I know it may hurt.  In those times, may I chose you.
