The Power of Christ Over Evil
After the calming of the storm, Jesus was not finished showing His disciples His power, or His love for the most lost and enslaved of all people.
The demoniacs of Matthew 8:28-34 were dangerous and no one could go near them. Yet they were no threat to Christ, who chose to free them.
The power of Christ over evil is a critical truth Scripture teaches, and not only here. But this passage demonstrates this divine capacity of the Son of God in a unique and important way, because of how His sovereign will is matched by His lovingkindness.
