And they began to beg Jesus to depart from their region. As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him. And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled.
We can see the two different responses in this passage. The first one from the people of the city, they knew about what Jesus has done however they refused to believe in Him instead they rejected him and begged him to go. On the other hand, the man who was possessed by Legion did the opposite, he begged Jesus that he might be allowed to follow Jesus. From the same event, we can see 2 different responses. From the same salvation event and forgiveness, there can be 2 different responses, rejection and repentance, which one is your response?
