The theme for Dr. David Jeremiah daily devotional for today August 12 2023 is ”Sharing Christ With Others” and it is a message highly recommended for today’s spiritual growth and upliftment.
SCRIPTURE: “Return to your own house, and tell what great things God has done for you.” And [the man] went his way and proclaimed throughout the whole city what great things Jesus had done for him.
Students of evangelism in the Early Church have used a unique phrase to describe how the Gospel was shared: “gossiping the Gospel.” Talking to others is how news about Christ was shared. News traveled “through the grapevine” from one person or household to another.
When Jesus delivered a man from demonic powers that were tormenting him, the man was so relieved and appreciative that he wanted to go with Jesus, to become one of His followers. Instead, Jesus told him to go home and share with others what God had done for him. And he did—“throughout the whole city.” In other words, he became a witness to what he had heard and seen and experienced (1 John 1:1, 3).
What has God been doing in your life or the lives of others over the summer? Let your home be a house of witnesses going forward—a source of testimony to what great things God has done for you.
Your job today is to be a witness.
