Tell Your Friends ~ Sunday Devotional
“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 (NKJV)
What has Jesus done for you?
Tell somebody about it.
Not just anybody, though.
Tell your friends and your family.
The man who Jesus had just set free wanted to join Him and the disciples but Jesus told him to stay, go to his own home, and tell his story.
Have you ever thought, “If I just had a bigger stage, a bigger platform, I could make a difference”?
Do you look around at what others are doing and think that if you ever got the chance, you could do that too?
God has you where you are for a reason.
The people in your corner of the world need to hear your story. They need to hear the story of what God did for you, how He changed you.
And how He can do the same for them.
Instead of waiting for your “big break” or a bigger following on social media, start sharing your story with the people right in front of you.
Your friends and your family need Jesus. They need to know that what He did thousands of years ago and what He did for you yesterday is available for them as well.
Home. That’s your mission field.
Sometimes that’s the most difficult place but it’s where God is calling you and asking you to share His love.
