What Jesus Did! 'Go Tell Them Something Great' — Mark 5:18-19

Saturday, March 26, 2016

Jesus was preparing to leave in the boat. The man that was freed from the demons begged to go with Jesus. But Jesus did not allow the man to go. Jesus said, "Go home to your family and friends. Tell them about all the things the Lord did for you. Tell them that the Lord was good to you."
— Mark 5:18-19 NLT
Illustration of Mark 5:18-19 NLT — "Go home to your family and friends. Tell them about all the things the Lord did for you. Tell them that the Lord was good to you."

Key Thought

Go tell the wonderful things God has done for you! This is not a command just to legion, but also a command to us! God is merciful! God has saved us! How can we not share this powerful message with others?

Today's Prayer

O God, give my mouth the words to say and a heart full of joy so that I can be effective in telling others what Jesus has done for me! In Jesus' name I ask for this grace. Amen.
