Daily Bible Reading: Mark 5:1 – 20
Verse of the Day: Mark 5:19 – “And he suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go to thy house unto thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and how he had mercy on thee.”
I have felt many times that once Christ saved me, it would have been so much better if He took me to Heaven. All the struggles I could by-pass. But, in this healing of the Demon-possessed man gives us an insight in the reason we are left here.
When we have found the eternal promise and life given by the grace of God, our purpose in life takes on a brand new shade of meaning. We remain here to go and share what great things the Lord has done for us. We are to tell others about the mercy we have been granted, and that they too can receive this mercy. We are here today for the express purpose of telling others about Jesus and His saving grace and mercy.
Prayer: Jesus, help me to be Your hands, feet, and voice to others who need the wonderful solution to eternal doom. Amen.
