Psa 107:2 – Tell your story

The campfire is crackling, casting dancing shapes out into the dark night. Seated on logs enjoying the warmth, I’m enraptured by a stranger’s story as he recounts his travels through the wild bushveld of Africa. We all love stories. They connect with us in a special way. One day Jesus met a deranged man called Legion, who had lived for years among the tombs. Yet when he meets Jesus, his life is changed forever when Jesus heals his insanity. When the people to the village came, they saw the man “sitting there, dressed and in his right mind” (Mark 5:15). What an incredible transformation. But it’s what Jesus says next to the man that is important. “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.” (Mark 5:19). Imagine the story he would have to tell. A transformation that would astound his friends. “Let the redeemed of the LORD tell their story—those he redeemed from the hand of the foe” (Psalms 107:2). This is the instruction to all of us. If you have experienced the incredible impact of Jesus freeing you from the foe – the madness of greed, fear, pride, shame, and many other ills – from a life among the tombs to the life of eternity, then you have an incredible story to tell. Tell your story. Open Bible –,
