2015-08-01 - Spreading the Good News
Mark 7:36-37 "Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more He did so, the more they kept talking about it. People were overwhelmed with amazement."
In the seventh chapter of the Gospel of Mark, Jesus travels through the regions of Tyre and Sidon. Word about Jesus spreads, and the inhabitants bring people needing healing to Him. Jesus repeatedly warns those who are healed not to tell anyone. Yet these people cannot contain their excitement and amazement. They go about spreading the Good News.
What about us? Do we share their excitement? Do we spread the Good News of Jesus? Jesus heals not only our physical ailments, but more importantly, Jesus also heals our hearts. Have you told someone about Jesus today?
