Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “Healing the Soul” based on Luke 8:26-39 for the Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time on June 23, 2013. Jesus has just stilled the storm on the Sea of Galilee; now He heals and calms the soul of the man filled with demons. Luke is demonstrating that all forces—nature, evil, demons, disease and death—that threaten to overwhelm us, threaten to diminish or extinguish human flourishing—are rendered powerless by Jesus' presence and power. Relationship to Jesus brings security in the midst of the trials and temptations of this life.
