What I got from Jesus is: Demonstrate your transformation to your family
What I got today from Jesus is to show forth a reality. A reality that leading our own family members to receive Jesus as their Savior, Lord and King is perhaps the most difficult thing. Why?
Well, this passage shows us one of the reason. The man who Jesus drove out so many demons within him did not want to go home but to follow Jesus. This is a rare case that Jesus did not allow someone to follow him after he was being free from those demons, healed. Jesus wanted the man to confront with what he did not to confront and that was his own family members. We do not have other information about what happened in his home. Anyway, Jesus wanted him to go home and demonstrated how Jesus healed and transformed his life.
Jesus asks you today to try all your best to demonstrate your transformation to your family by telling them, showing them, chatting with them, witnessing to them....any possible way. You need to start soon before you forget how Jesus calls you today! Is it too difficult for you to do? No! It's just you do not want to do. So, do it!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be willing to following your command to demonstrate our transformation to our family members. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
Photos I took in yesterday's(May 14 Tues.) Holy Trinity Brompton Leadership Conference. 5,500 attended! You can see Bishop Chuck Murphy and his wife Margaret, Bishop Philip Jones and his wife Cladia, Bishop TJ and his wife Rees. And a picture with Chuck, Margaret, H Miller and then Tim Hughes on their right hand side. Tim Hughes is perhaps one of the most famous praise song writer and worship leader on earth now. We had Tim Hughes invited everyone to sing in tongues for at least five minutes. We had thousands of people singing in tongues and it was just glorious, like heaven!
