Your Story

As Jesus was getting into the boat, the demon-delivered man begged to go along, but he wouldn’t let him. Jesus said, “Go home to your own people. TELL THEM YOUR STORY—what the Master did, how he had mercy on you.” The man went back and began to preach in the Ten Towns area about what Jesus had done for him. He was the talk of the town. (Mark 5:18-20 MSG)

There's nothing like a good story. But even more so, there's nothing like a good story that actually happened in real life. I love watching great movies that are based on real people's lives. It makes the story that much more amazing and exciting to me.

Jesus told the demon-delivered man to go tell his story and tell people about His encounter with Jesus. He did just that and many not only listened, they told others about it, too.

So, what's your story?  If anyone has encountered Jesus, they have a story. And I don't mean just your salvation story. I mean the ongoing story of your life as you live in relationship with Jesus -- the daily encounters and your stories big and small of the goodness of God in your life. Jesus tells us to Go! Go tell about Him. Go tell YOUR story. You might be surprised how many will listen.
