Mark 5:19-20 – 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.”  And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him and everyone marveled.

Observation –  

The demonic spirits that possessed the man known as Legion knew that Jesus was the Son of God.  Jesus has power over the demonic spirits and he cast them out into a herd of pigs thereby healing the man.  The man really wanted to travel with Jesus after he was healed.  Jesus told the man to return home and began to tell your friends what the Lord has done for you.  Legion went and proclaimed what Jesus had done and everyone was amazed.


First we need to recognize that Jesus is the Son of Man.  Then we need to realize what Jesus did for us that we are unable to do for ourselves.  Jesus had love and mercy on each and every one of us when he died on the cross for us then overcame death while we were still sinners.  We need to have a relationship and walk with Jesus by being in the word, in prayer and part of a local body.  Our walk with Jesus prepares us to go share with our friends, neighbors, family and everyone what Jesus has done for us in a winsome loving way!  Our story is His glory and when we share how love of Jesus has changed our lives the Spirit will convict people.



Thank you for your love, grace and mercy in sending Jesus to save us while we were still sinners.  Let me realize that every day and share my story in a winsome way to make you known.
