After living a life of demonic misery, the man “begged Jesus that he might be with Him. And He did not permit him but said to him, “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how He has had mercy on you”” (5:19).
This same principle is happening in places around the world, particularly among Muslims as well as countries like China. The personal testimonies of transformation are enough to cause others to come to Christ. Whole villages are hearing the gospel and coming to faith in Jesus because the individuals are telling their stories of deliverance over and over.
Some are gifted and called to preach the gospel. But ALL are told to “GO…AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS” (Matthew 28:19). Let your story of salvation be told over and over to “your friends” as you are going through every responsibility that God has placed in your life.
