Simply Jesus- Go Tell

Mark 5 & 6

A couple of days ago we heard Jesus message to Matthew - come follow. Now to a guy whose life had just been changed beyond all recognition he says - Go tell.

We don't know this mans name but he certainly was infamous in his locality. A total mad man who spent his time slashing himself. Other people solution to tie him up. He was beyond human help then Jesus steps into his world. Jesus steps into death and brings life and into chaos and brings peace.

The delivered madman wants to join Jesus crew and follow him. Understandable when your life has been revolutionised. Jesus says:

v19 - Jesus said, “Go home to your own people. Tell them your story—what the Master did, how he had mercy on you.”

After his encounter with Jesus the man became an Evangelist visiting the 10 towns in his region telling everyone he met about this man who had changed his life.

If Jesus has stepped in to our world his message to us is Go Tell!
