Go Home To Your Family !

“Go home to your family and tell them how much the Lord has done for you and how good he has been to you.” Mark 5:19 CEV

Have you ever been at a celebration, a graduation, a birthday party, at a friends wedding so wonderful that you never wanted to leave? That’s how the man in Mark chapter 5 felt after Jesus healed him from a life of suicide tendencies, mental insanity, uncontrollable rage. He wanted to travel with Jesus, listen to His teachings and take notes, witness His miracles, and enjoy His company. But Jesus told him to go home and tell his family what God had done for him.

God doesn’t want you to live remote and distant from the rest of the world! The only way to keep what you have, is to give it away. After a spiritual mountaintop experience, you must take what you’ve received and share it with those living and struggling in the valley.

The man in today’s reading had spent years living in a graveyard. He was cutting himself and raving incoherently. Now the crowd saw him “sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed and in his right mind” Luke 8:35

And that’s still how it works.

First Jesus clothes you, then He calls you. When you come to Him, you’re spiritually naked, so He wraps you in His righteousness. Paul says, “Any man…in Christ…is a new creature: old things are passed away…all things are become new” 2 Corinthians 5:17.

Whereas you were once “in Adam” where all die, now you’re “in Christ” where all are made alive spiritually. 1 Corinthians 15:22

But never forget that once you’re “clothed and in your right mind,” it’s your God-given mandate to go out and tell others what the Lord has done for you.

Go home…and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you.” Mark 5:19 NKJV
