Read Mark 5.
When I read this story I am reminded of the movie Porkeys when the guy comes out of the graveyard dressed as a zombie. Very comical to watch, probably not so much really living it. But there certainly is humor to be found in the scriptures.
Who will be more convincing, someone simply telling a story or someone that has actually lived it?
Here is a man to whom a wonderful gift was given, he wants to go with Jesus. Jesus tells him no. Then look what happens later, this man is telling everyone what Jesus has done. There is a principle here that wherever God goes, he leaves a witness. Sometimes the change is profound, most times it is subtle. He has placed each of us where we are to be a witness and testimony of what He has done. Sometimes it is hard to find the right time and place to speak of what God has done, be always ready to give account for what and why you believe.
