Jesus moves on from Tyre to the Decapolis (Mk 7:31-37). Here He heals a deaf man with a speech impediment. Afterwards, “He ordered them not to tell anyone; but the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it.” (v.36) The people then declared the line above. Now, today, we have no such prohibition from the Lord. In fact, His parting words urge the opposite: “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” (Mk 16:15) Personal testimony about how God has done “things well” in our life is a very powerful witness. We should reflect often on these blessings. Then we will not be shy, timid, or afraid to let “every creature” know of the wonderful graces we have received. Our joy will be powerful in making others desire what we have.
