Tell others about what God has done

Posted: September 25, 2014 in thought to ponder, TLCC

Read: Mark 5:1-20

He had no theological training. He was not included in the twelve disciples of Jesus. Prior to meeting Christ, He was a madman. “Insane” would even be a word that would be used to describe him. He was effective as a missionary though. He went to ten cities (Decapolis – Deca means ten, polis means city) to tell what Jesus had done for him. Everyone who listened to him marveled at him. If he could have his way, he would have gone with Jesus Christ instead. After all, who would hire a former demon-possessed man? Who would trust him that he would do the right thing when he used to live among the dead?

Jesus did. After healing him, Jesus told him to “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”

An encounter with Christ is enough for a man to go to town to town telling of what Jesus did.

Some of us may be like this man. No theological training. We haven’t gone to a Bible School or sit in a lecture on evangelism. We may be “ordinary” in our eyes. In fact, some of us would be thinking…”I’m not really worthy to witness for Christ”. Some of us are probably new in the faith, or did not grow up in Sunday school. Guess what?

We aren’t exempted from telling what God has done. For if we have an encounter with Christ, we are to tell others what He has done.

Check your week. Were you sick and healing came? Tell others about what God did. Were you in trouble with someone and that relationship was restored? Talk to your friends about how God bridged that gap. Whatever situation you had for your week, look for the things that God did…and tell others about it.
