Mark Day 13

And he did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”

Mark 5:19

Our testimony about what God has done for us is one of the most profound things we can proclaim.  Every person who has come to God through Christ has a testimony.  Meeting Jesus is life-changing and if not I’m not sure you’ve met Jesus.  Just as Jesus delivered the Gerasene, Jesus delivers us from the tombs  and laws associated with sin.  The wages of sin is death.  Sin leaves us naked and ashamed.   Tombs and laws can’t control the person who is looking for love.  The enemy feeds off our loneliness and despair.  Tombs remind us of the death we’ve chosen, and laws remind us of our inability to find love and life.  The law doesn’t provide us with the love we seek, only the mercy of Jesus can help us.  When Jesus steps onto the scene everything changes and when we let Him step into our lives, He changes us.  It’s that miracle that we have to share.  We might not understand all that He is or all that He can do but we know this, He changed our lives and the direction of our lives with His great love.  No more visiting the tombstones of our bad decisions and broken relationships, we have a testimony for Jesus Himself.  Start there,  Go and tell how much the Lord has done for you.
