“When Monsters Witness” By Kirk Hunt
And he departed and began to proclaim in Decapolis all that Jesus had done for him; and all marveled.
Mark 5:20 NKJV
Jesus paused before getting in the boat. “Go home and be a witness,” He instructed the man he had just saved. Messiah then left the monster where He found him, but not as he found him.
Some folk recognized the formerly possessed man from across the street. Some only realized it was the same man after speaking with him for a while. All understood the complete change that had happened in his life.
Your witness is important. Only you can tell your story correctly. The evidence of your life cannot be denied.
You do not need to embellish or exaggerate. Just tell the straight story. Especially the part where God intervened in your life.
He-who-was-a-monster did not need to embellish or exaggerate. His calm, steady eyes told a story of healing and restoration. His rational, peaceful manner spoke loudly of supernatural power and grace.
Compassion from heaven fell on a man everyone else had written off. Power from God had healed and restored a lost cause. All he had to do was testify in short, simple words.
You have an account of what God has done for you. Be a witness. Just tell the truth.
Think: Who better than you can tell your story of God’s power?
Pray: “Father-God, help me tell the story of Your power in my life.”
