And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him. 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.
- Mark 5:18-19

Jesus freed a man of a legion of unclean spirits, and the man responded by wanting to stay with Jesus. I can understand his response. Jesus gave him a completely new life, free from darkness and full of light. Gratitude must have flowed from his heart as he expressed his desire to stay with Jesus.

As noble as this man's request was, Jesus did not grant it. Instead, he told the man, "Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee."

By sending this man home to his friends to share good news, Jesus could touch many more people than just one man. The stories of his compassion would bless many and perhaps inspire them to show compassion to others.

When we receive life through Jesus Christ, our heart desire should be to share what we have received. Keeping Christ to ourselves goes against the very message that he preached.

Reading the Bible, praying and going to church are all necessary and noble, but they are only part of the Christian life. Another vital part is evangelism, or sharing the great things that the Lord has done for us.

Our testimonies of how the Lord changed our lives can have a greater impact than we can imagine. People will realize that if the Lord can free us from darkness, then he can free them too.

Just don't listen to the good news. Share it.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Very solid article. You are sharing about the most exciting topic in the world. Maybe a little stronger intro, but other than that you nailed it.
