“Return to your home, and declare how much God has done for you.” And he went away, proclaiming throughout the whole city how much Jesus had done for him.”

Luke 8:39

In Luke chapter 8 Jesus frees a man from a lifetime of bondage to evil spirits. After Jesus commands the spirits to depart, the man immediately recognizes the greatness of Jesus, and of course wants to be with Him; however, Jesus responds, “Return home and declare how much God has done for you!” This is one simple formula: Jesus saves us and sends us, and we go and tell the world; has continued for over 2000 years. It is nothing new, but yet it remains just as powerful today as it was 2000 years ago. The ministry of our Lord and Savior continues today, and it will until He returns. The testimonies of those He heals, calls out of bondage, and redeems by His blood, are just as powerful as those we read about in scripture. They remind us of the fact that He has kept His promise to send His Spirit and be with us until the end of the age. These testimonies are meant to point you to the One responsible for them and to send you after Him so that you would come to know the freedom only offered in Him.

Therefore, go to Jesus, He is the only one with the power to set you free, He is the only one who can save you and send you, so that you can tell the world all He’s done for you!
