Jesus Did Not Permit Him

However, Jesus did not permit him, but said to him, ‘Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.’ ” – Mark 5:19

I think about this man often. This was the demon-possessed man living in the tombs. Jesus heals him and when He goes to leave, the man wants to go too. Who wouldn’t?

But Jesus says: No. Go home.

What?! Devastating.

Sometimes, when Jesus has done a life-changing, jaw-dropping, and pride-crushing thing for you – Your mission is… to stay put.

Go home.

Tell others.

Tell your friends.

Tell them what great things the Lord has done for you.

Tell them how He has had compassion on you.
