“Go home to your family and announce to them all that the Lord in his pity has done for you.”

Today we pick up where we left off Saturday, staring a new chapter in Mark (5:1-20).  It is the story of the Gerasene demoniac, who, possessed by a “Legion” of demons, is exorcised, with the demons sent into a herd of pigs by Jesus per the evil spirits’ request.  This strikes fear in the people of the area, but the cured man wishes to follow Jesus.  That is when Jesus tells him the words above.  What wonderful advice for us today!  Are we willing to tell everyone we encounter the great things the Lord had done for us?  Such a powerful witness on behalf of Jesus is a wonderful way to evangelize.  By declaring how knowing the Lord has changed us for the better, we give testimony to His infinite love and mercy, and we encourage others to desire the peace and joy that we have.
