Mark 5:18-20 NIV
As Jesus was getting into the boat, the man who had been demon-possessed begged to go with him. [19] Jesus did not let him, but said, “Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” [20] So the man went away and began to tell in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him. And all the people were amazed.

After his dramatic liberation, the man who was demon-possessed inevitably wants to stay with Jesus – understandable, wouldn’t you? But Jesus instead sends him out with a different agenda, to share his experiences with others. Maybe we’re a little like him too?

Lord, align my agenda with yours today.
