In the first chapter of Mark’s gospel, Jesus heals a man with leprosy and says, “See that you don’t tell this to anyone…” (v.44). However, v.45 says, “Instead he went out and began to talk freely, spreading the news. As a result, Jesus could no longer enter a town openly but stayed outside in lonely places. Yet the people still came to him from everywhere.”
When Jesus heals us from sin, instead of telling us to be quiet about it, he instructs us to tell everybody. Acts 1:8 says in part, “…You will be my witnesses…” Yet some Christians don’t ever tell anybody what Jesus did for them! Imagine that!
