MORNINGTIME 2201
 
And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea. 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. AND HE DEPARTED, AND BEGAN TO PUBLISH in Decapolis HOW GREAT THINGS JESUS HAD DONE FOR HIM: and all men did marvel. Mark 5:2-3, 6-8, 13, 18-20. To Make a long story short, a demon possessed man was healed and saved, he asked to go travel with Jesus, and Jesus said to stay and tell all his friends the Good News. He stayed behind and told everyone, and Christ was Glorified. Here's the point. Instead of riding WITH Jesus, he was was Obedient to tell people ABOUT Jesus. He was content to skip all the glitz and glitter of being WITH Jesus, and simply told OF and ABOUT Jesus. In today's terms, he didn't go on the Oprah show and write a book about himself, he stayed home and simply, told all his friends about WHO Christ was. He didn't make millions of dollars, he made hundreds of converts to Christ. If you’re Saved, is that enough for YOU to stay home and tell EVERYONE you know about Christ and all He's done for you? Or do you want to be in the limelight too? Tell OF Christ, and BE Blessed.
