Have you ever wondered if you are living the purpose you were created for?
I read this verse the other day that had me think. Here’s the scene, a man, who was tormented by demons was cast out into an isolated wooded area by the people in the town he lived. Jesus meets the man and made the demons leave him. The man was so happy he wanted to go with Jesus. But Jesus told him, “*No, go back to your family, and tell them everything God has done for you.”
This could be compared to many things like alcohol, drug or porn addiction, even mental or health challenges that Jesus set a person free from by surrendering their life to Him.
Yes, once the person surrenders their life they are sanctified, set apart and their name is written in the Book of Life (means their going to heaven).
But why are they left on earth, why wouldn’t God take them to heaven at the moment they made the agreement with Him?
Because God has a specific **purpose for the one that surrenders to Him and His plan has to do with them telling others everything God has done for them.
And these days (especially in the US) actions speak louder than words.
