free from demons


In our small group discussion this week, we were looking at the chapter on Mary Magdalene (from Losers Club). The main question for the chapter is, can God use me after all I’ve been through?.

I asked the jr. highers to describe, in one word, how it might have felt for Mary to be free from the demons. Here are a few of their responses:

Refreshing
Loved
Cleansed
Pure

Not a bad list. No matter what the “demon” is we are facing (greed, lust, pride, anger, hatred, pressures…) once we are free from their grasp there is a peace that we feel.

What has a hold of you? What is keeping you from feeling refreshed? What is keeping you from feeling loved?

What do you need to do to be freed from the chains?
