Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed. (NIV)
I love this story. After Jesus cast out the demons and this man was “clothed and in his right mind,” Jesus sent him back home to report to all of his people what God had done for him and how he had received God’s mercy.
That’s exactly what he did! And all the people were amazed.
Disciplemaking includes telling people the news of God’s mercy in your life. Who have you told lately?
Who will you tell today?
Go tell “your people” how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you!
