TELL THEM

Mark 5:19  Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee.

 

These are the words that Jesus spoke to the man that had been possessed by a legion of demons and was healed by Jesus. Jesus said to him, ““No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been.” So what do you reckon the man did? He did it. Not only did he tell his family but the bible says he went to Decapolis  meaning “ten cities”. He went to Damascus, Opoton, Philadelphia, Raphana, Scythopolis, Gadara, Hippondion, Pella, Galasa, Canatha and began to proclaim the great things Jesus had done for him; and everyone was amazed at what he told them.

 

When was the last time you told anyone what the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been? Tell them.

 

May the Grace of the Lord be with you,
