Go And Tell !

What a great commission for the Christian : to go and tell of the great things that the Lord has done ! It is a joy to talk about how much compassion He has for us ! This man in Mark 5 was bound by spiritual chains when chains that were made by men couldn't hold him. He was wild. He cut himself with stones. He was possessed by devils. Then, the Gadarene met the Nazarene ! Jesus came and set him free ! Do you remember that day when you were set free ? The chains were broken ! You called upon the name of the Lord ! You got saved ! You were blind, but now you see ! Jesus told you to go and tell of what he has done for you ! I was reading this passage in March of 1993 when I lived in Shreveport. The Lord was telling me to go home to witness for him. I came back to West Monroe the next month. I witnessed to everyone that I came in contact with. I witnessed on the job. I told all my friends what the Lord had done for me ! I did lose a lot of friends, but God gave me new ones ! I am still going and telling ! The commandments from the Lord through His word are not grievous !
For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? (1 John 5:3-5 KJV)
Be encouraged ! It is joy in obeying the commandment to go and tell ! The first two letters in Gospel is go ! Let's go and tell today !
