Jesus travels to what was considered an unclean territory where he meets a man possessed by unclean spirits who lived in an unclean place. In that place, the man whose identity was lost, encounters God’s love in a way that gives him a new life.
We need not be defined by the work we do; our identity is not dependent on our successes and failures. It is not your doing that will save you, it is the foundational identity of who you are as one who is claimed by God.
We often assume false identities by the names, descriptions, and comments of others. These false identities are defined as our Photo ID.
