Luke 8:39 “Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” So he went away, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him.
Grateful to have his life returned, the man wants to leave home and follow Jesus, but Jesus says to stay and tell others what the Lord has done for him.
To follow Jesus is to tell others, at home and elsewhere, with your words and your living, what the Lord has done for you. It is both the cost and the reward.
MOVING FORWARD: How are you declaring the gospel of Jesus with your life?
