A Powerful Testimony
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.
This account in scripture is about a man who was possessed with many demons that Jesus freed him from. He was out of his mind and out of control, but when Jesus stepped into his life, it was completely changed. Only Jesus could have done this incredible miracle in this man's life, and because of Him, this man now had peace, joy, and happiness in his life. It doesn't matter your past or the things that have control over your life because when Jesus comes into your life, He takes control and makes a change that only He can. Jesus can free us from the bondage of sin and clothe us with His righteousness. Jesus has and will continue to do great and mighty things in our lives, and just like this man, we have a testimony of God's power in our life that can be shared with others. Jesus wants us to tell others of the deliverance He has brought in our life along with the peace, joy, and comfort that we get to enjoy because of Him. We should never be ashamed of the Gospel and what Jesus has done in our lives, but instead, we can be thankful for a God who is in the business of changing lives and delivering people from the bondage of sin.
