An Evangelism Thought...
“Jesus commanded them not to tell anyone. But the more He did so, the more they kept talking about it.” Mark 7:36 
The people of the Decapolis told everyone what Jesus did for them, even though He commanded them not to do so. How much more should we be telling others about Jesus, now that we are commanded to?
