In the fifth chapter of Mark, Jesus encounters a man living in a cemetery who is possessed by a legion of demons. The madman is healed by Jesus and wants to follow him on his travels. Instead of allowing the healed man to come with him, Jesus gives him a new task:
Jesus said, “Go home to your own people. Tell them your story—what the Master did, how he had mercy on you.” The man went back and began to preach in the Ten Towns area about what Jesus had done for him. He was the talk of the town.
We are entering a season where we might tell our story about what the Master did for us and how He had mercy on us. We are beginning our season of stewardship and making our commitment to the further ministry of Jesus Christ through this church. We each have stories of how God has provided, healed, guided and nudged us as His followers. During the month of October, we will hear stories of Christ touching our lives and how we can be involved in His ministry by sharing Time, Talent and Treasures. I hope that you will share “what the Master did” in your life with your church family and your neighbor.
