Proclaim Freely...

"..he went out and began to proclaim it freely, and to spread the word.."
Mk 1:45

Reading
Mk 1:40-45

An interesting passage where a man with leprosy meets Jesus and gets himself healed. Jesus asks him not to tell anyone but to go to the priests and do what Moses had commanded. But, this man went out and began  to freely tell everyone about Jesus and spread the word.

What an interesting personality, he transcends the commands of Moses and all the rituals, he no longer wants to be in a system where there is oppression in the name of God. But, he chose to talk about Jesus, he was not preaching a codified religion, but, he was spreading the news about Jesus - a person who has touched his life. Probably he was the first one to begin what we call "New Testament", he chose to live a New Testament possibility.

What are we waiting for, all you have to do is talk about the person Jesus Christ who has touched your life. Proclaim Freely. Spread the Word.
