You Can Be Set Free (5 of 8)
Series: Life Changer, Soul Saver
Ernest L. Easley
We're learning these days from the gospel of Mark about Jesus: the Life Changer, Soul Saver. So take Gods Word and join me in Mark 5 where we're going to discover that Jesus not only has authority over disease and death … but also over demons.
Now as you find Mark 5 … I want you to look up here because there is something I want to make sure you hear and understand today:

Whatever has you in bondage: that addiction, that habit, that thing that is destroying you physically, destroying your marriage … destroying you mentally … THAT THING! You really can be set free. Let me say it another way:
YOU CAN CHANGE!
And that's what we've been learning these days from the gospel of Mark. Today from Mark 5, we're going to read about a man, who like some of you today, wanted to change, a man who others had tried to change, but neither him nor his family and friends knew how to change or how to bring about change.
People tried to FORCE him to change. Force doesn't bring about lasting change. You cannot force somebody to change. Neither do FACTS nor FEAR. The three most common factors in bringing about change: FACTS, FEAR, FORCE, will fail 90% of the time and today we're going to find another example of that reality.
But on the other hand, we're also going to find another example of what brings about lasting change. Do you remember the three change factors?
1. Change begins by establishing a new relationship that inspires and sustains hope.
