Bible Text: “What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to destroy us?” Matthew 8. 28-34
Every project is equivalent to inconvenience. If we want to improve our situation we will endure a busy moment. The road will be fixed and expanding we need to be patient first while doing so: noise, dust, slow run of vehicles and so on. When it ends, it's a big sense of relief. This pandemic endures few things: wearing a mask and physical distancing and so on. Just a little bit of patience so the situation will not get worse. This is for all of us too.
Jesus' healing two demonic possessions tortured not only these two men but throughout the community. He had to send them to the pigs which ran and fell off the cliff. Great inconvenience to the owner so he dismissed Jesus so they won't be distracted again. Our own well being prevail more than Jesus could do for the community. They don't want inconvenience.
In life if we want God to change for the better, be prepared for inconvenience. We have sacrifices. Someone has to give up and someone will let go. Someone will turn their back, a lot of inconvenience so to speak. We will get hurt. It will be difficult too. But nothing changes will not work hard. Nothing changes without sacrifice. Change is busy but in return is permanent comfort and happiness. That's it, a lot of inconvenience doesn't want. So they are just suffering from what they have now and what they are now. They will endure a lower lifestyle rather than being patient with temporary inconvenience.
If you want to rise, endure the inconvenience. If you don't want to be bothered, be patient at the bottom!
