The Pastor's Pen
The Bible says, "And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatic, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them." - Matthew 4:24
Interesting point! Some who even though their life has been impacted so by the Lord Jesus, strangely never mention him to anyone. In this scripture, notice...His fame went...no silent Christians there. They were thrilled to have met Jesus and wanted others to meet him too. They brought the unfortunate to Him. All kinds of conditions, needy and desperate. And He Healed them! Hallelujah! Why would you want to hide that from anyone?
How long has it been since you told somebody about Jesus? How long has it been since somebody saw Jesus in your life! Let's share Him. Let's proclaim Him! Let's live Him! Let's love Him!
On my way to Heaven,
- Preacher Chuck
