“However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the LORD has done for you, and How He had compassion on you. And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all that Jesus had done for him; and all marveled.”
Just a few verses earlier, this guy was living in a graveyard possessed by demons! Now he is of a clear mind, wanting to stay with Jesus, but He tells him to go and share the good news of salvation!
“The LORD has done great things for us, And we are glad.”
Like this ex demon possessed man, the LORD has done great and amazing things for us too! He saved us! So, too, we should go out and proclaim the great things that the LORD has done!
“Sing to the LORD, all the earth; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.”
1 Chronicles 16:23
Even if you are going through some rough times today, maybe health issues, finances or a major decision that needs to be made. The thing we still get to do is proclaim and share how good the LORD is! Have a blessed day proclaiming the good news of salvation!
