Saturday, February 25th: Numbers 9-11; Mark 5:1-20 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Numbers 9-11; Mark 5:1-20

Mark 5:18-20 As he was getting into the boat, the man who had been possessed with demons begged him that he might be with him.  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.

“Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.”

Share the gospel.  Spread the good news.  Tell people what God has done for you.

This is not a command only for this man.  It is for all of us.  This man did not hesitate - he went and he proclaimed.

Do we?

Jesus did something great for this man, and has done something great for us too, He died for us, gave up His life for us then defeated death by coming back. We hear that so often, but need to realize the awesomeness of it.

And Moses said to them, "Wait, that I may hear what the LORD will command concerning you." - Numbers 9:8

To wait upon the Lord. Something that is not easy to do when we want an answer immediately, but something that we need to do and place our trust in Him.
